some are open from top & some from the bottom. Some people would purposely open from bottom because they felt bottom was cleaner than the top that could & would accumulate dust & dirt & possible rodent droppings. LEON.

Dust, dirt, rodent droppings, isn’t that against the pure Food and Drug act of 1906? :D

NO, That act was for the Contents inside, not outside. LEON.

Never seen that Vermilion Beverages before, based on the oil derricks I'm assuming it's from Vermillion, Alberta? Also, where's the Double A from? Don't remember seeing that one before either.

That's still an issue with cans today. If you've ever worked in a warehouse where food is stored you'll know it's hardly the most sanitary place, and the tops of the cans are often left exposed. That's why some fancier brands will come with either aluminum foil or a solid plastic six pack thing covering the top of the can.

Yes it's from Vermillion AB. The Double A is very scarce...it's from 1939 by Felix Bottlers Ltd., Vancouver BC

Another issue with can tops being exposed, comes from disgruntled drive through liquor store employees, after being chastised by lazy asses, that can't come inside, but have 8 different orders, each with several different kinds & sizes of beer (ex. 4 tall cans of budweiser, 3 qts or old English, 7 forty's or schlitz, 5 quart cans of high life, & a pint of the bumpy face)!! And that was just the 1st order, then when you come back with what you think is right stuff, they wanna pop off with an attitude! So we'd just smile, apologize, run back inside cooler, and well.....the things we placed, or rubbed on the area a person puts their mouth to drink.......probably not appropriate for this forum!!

Moral of the story: don't be an asshat to employees that serve you items you plan on putting inside, or up to your mouth!! Or just don't be an ass at all
