Tried putting this into google every way I could think of, I’m trying to find some pictures of hutch or blob soda bottles either on display or in-use circa 1890-1910. Found plenty of pictures of soda fountains from that period, but no bottled products other than jars behind the counter, presumably for flavorings or medicines, considering how much overlap there was with fountains. If anyone has any on hand I’d greatly appreciate it if you could share them.

Assuming you are looking for actual photographs and not advertising artwork, you might want to search for historical photos of sites or events where people would consume the products. Parks, fairs, swimming beaches and picnics come to mind. I'm guessing such bottles will be incidental to the event and not featured prominently.

It's easy to find historical photos of whiskey, beer and wine bottles in use. Soda does seem a bit of a challenge!
