i noticed this bottle on ebay , a green 30 oz Lukinto Club Ginger Ale bottle from Geraldton Ontario. which is a small town in northern ontario , which must of been a mining or mill town back then to be big enough to have its own bottler .

green 30 oz bottle with yellow/ red paint , on back bottled by Loudon Bros ltd Geraldton Ontario


i haven't really seen this bottle before , would assume there is also a clear 30 oz version too and a 7 oz green bottle , cause i have a similar 7 oz clear bottle

this is the Lukinto Club bottle i have , found it at a flea market years ago , might of paid a couple dollars for it .

not in very good condition , missing the yellow paint but appears to be same design as the 30 oz bottle

different back faded but says

" Drink Lukinto Club , orange , root beer , ginger ale and lukintang

bottled by loudon Bros ltd , geraldton ont , contents 7 fl oz "

not sure what lukintang was perhaps a local flavour

too bad this one isn't in better condition , might be an uncommon version as i haven't seen many since if any

also have pictures of these 2 bottles , a clear and green version of the 10 oz bottle , 50's > 60's era

on the back they mention lemon lime as one of the flavours not lukintang

I'm not sure what the population of Geraldton was in the 50's> 60's when these bottles used .

the population today is only 2600 with around 5000 in the surrounding area ( greenstone township ) , but Wikipedia mentions there was 8 different gold mines in the area from 1930's > 70's , so unclear what the population was but would of been people living and working in that area

my book says there was 2 bottlers in geraldton

Geraldton Bottling Works / Geraldton Bottling co which bottled pepsi cola , crush , hires and seven up , which started around the mid 1930's and lasted into the late 60's

Loudon Brothers ltd - which was the coca cola bottlers and did Lukinto Club which started around the late 30's and lasted into the late 60's .
they also went by the name Loudon's beverages in there very early days , might be a clear embossed bottle I seem to recall seeing it

Hi again. I’m here in Michigan, but love my Canadian crown tops. Here are two nice groups. The single is a Canadian that I’m looking for. Hope to hear from you.

Never heard of the Orange Sweet Co before, where's it from?

it was used by the toronto soda water manufacturing co , was an orange crush look a like from the 20's - 30's
The question is, Can you find me one, and sell it to me?
