a seller on ebay seems to be unloading a ton of bottles from the Thunder Bay area , though this one was also interesting . its from Fort William Bottling Works and would be from the 1910's > 20's era . it was one of the main bottlers in that area at the time but was several others also active .

one of the reasons I was interested in that bottle was because I have a bottle from the same bottler .

found it years ago at an antique store in southern Ontario but was really dirty at the time and took a while to clean up , and its still not entirely clean but looks much better than it did before

but this one is a clear beehive style bottle made by dominion glass co . marked dominion glass company limited RD 1927 on bottom

don't think I've seen another one since , curious to see if this ebay seller also has one as he's listed many bottles from that area so far . my book says the Fort William bottling works lasted until 1948 and also bottled 7 up , mission and wynola .
