did mention Husky Kirkland Lake . do have that bottle and the frosty Nip

found a clear ND crush a couple weeks ago but never an amber , found a broken webb's a few years ago but don't have one .

that America dry looks early , not sure what year it started here ?

Beautiful display, Ivan.... do you have the amber O.C. with Mr.Crushy left? As you know, these are described on p.44-48 in my book and are indeed, as special 'category' of O.C. bottles with a tremendous number of variants. Well done... Michael

Hi JKL.... nice display. Your amber 'throw away' Orange Crush bottle is very rare... hang on to it. As well it is a bit unique being bilingual. Not all Canadian bottle were so on the same bottle prior to the Mae West style introduction.....

I've never seen that one before , did a search online all I could come up with was a government of Canada publication from 1957 on carbonated beverages . lists all the known bottlers at the time .

is a listing for " lakeside bottling co ltd " Channel

assuming ? channel is channel port au basques newfoundland as that's in western newfoundland
Yes that is what I think aswell. Yeah I did hours of research and only found that one document that you mentioned. I'm out digging for bottles now actually!

does it say ' Channel " or lakeside bottling co on the bottle ? whats on the back , usually you can still read that paint even if its faded off

I've never heard about there being a bottler in that town but considering its size and distance from rest of province , does make sense that it had one

also planning to go out digging this afternoon , weather actually nice today

The company was lakeside bottling Ltd and it was in fact from channel port au basque suprizingly. On the back it reads;
"A high quality product, made from the finest ingredients, min. Contents 6 1/2 FL oz. Property of the LAKESIDE bottling co. Channel nfld. This bottle is on deposit
