for some reason this bottle has eluded me so far and its suppose to be a fairly common local for this area and was sold here but not yet dug or found one yet . other than part of a broken one I found this summer . company operated from 1959 - late 60's or later from what I can find so not sure why a bottle has not popped up yet . I did see one for sale at an antique store in parry sound but they wanted way too much for it and bottle's acl was mostly faided away anyways . so guess I'm looking for more information or curious if anyone else out there has one , found a picture online of what the bottle looks like .

I finally found one , was at an annual flea market type event we have here and an antique vendor who I have bought bottles from in the past had one available for sale and I quickly bought it as I haven't even seen any others for sale so far this year . its also in really good condition and he didn't want that much for it . figure now that I have one next time I go swimming somewhere i'll find another

sometimes it takes longer to find something than you'd expect , 5 years later after I posted this I finally found a Cormacks Ginger ale bottle from Parry Sound in the wild , considering its local to my area not sure why I didn't uncover one until now

found this bottle swimming off a dock , it wasn't visible and hidden in the sand , found it with a stick

the acl is mostly faded but you can still read the back acl clearly , glass bottle itself is in fairly good condition

picture with other cormacks bottle I have for comparison

just noticed there is a Cormacks Beverages - Parry Sound wooden crate for sale on an auction site .

says " drink cormacks beverages Parry Sound " and comes with 3 quart bottles but box appears to be for the smaller 10 oz bottles

not sure i've seen one of these before but not entirely surprised there is some out there

Are you digging in spots that are too old?

I hear ACLs are a bit easier to find when digging at camping spots..

i've never really found any Cormacks bottles when digging , so many camping spots have been lost to time and development . i suppose some could still exist but be in hard to find or access places . on georgian bay is 100's of small undeveloped islands , i suppose there is a likely chance some of these bottles ended up on some of them years ago
