Hello all. This is my first post. Im new to bottles but learning as fast as I can. I’m digging up bottles in my yard and the one below has been a stumper for me. The age range for it will likely be between) 1897 (when our house was built) and 1913 (when city garbage pick up began in my city). I am in Southwestern Ontario Canada. I think it says “Purity Oxwaco”. Any ideas what it might have contained? Does the age range fit?
That's a really odd one. I think it says Purity Exwaco??? The top makes it look like a ketchup, but the rest looks like a soda. I could not find anything for a Purity Exwaco ketchup anywhere. Strange one for sure!
Oh goodness! Thank you both so much! I’m a sucker for ALL the details so I thoroughly enjoyed reading all of the information in that link. I’m surprised it’s a U.S. product but I guess I don’t really know how much locally made, bottled food products were being made in Southwestern, Ontario at the time. Many, many thanks for solving this mystery!
