added two more macdonalds beverages bottles from North Bay, Ontario, Canada to collection found them on ebay for a very reasonable price for the pair . these 2 are the 10 oz and 12 oz red and white bottles from around 50's - 60's i believe . there both in great condition and have all the colour still on label .

here is the 10 oz bottle

also been trying to add this bottle but have not been able to find one for sale yet , there was one on ebay but i was out bid , someone in the states had it for sale not sure how it made it all the way down there . have yet to find one digging or at any local antique stores yet . its from 1931 and all glass , its only 7 oz and an unusual design . it has city name of North Bay embossed in glass and Macdonalds beverages on other side a very nice bottle .

really old post but wanted to update this post with some new info and bottles from macdonalds beverages North Bay . as I've been collecting them for a while now

did eventually acquire the art deco 1931 bottle , never found one in the wild though or even a broken one , its embossed " North Bay " and " Macdonald & son ltd "

also posted a clear plain 7 oz bottle , embossed 1950 macdonalds beverages 7 oz bottle , and a 12 oz bottle

the main reason I wanted to post about Macdonalds beverages North Bay was cause I found an old newspaper ad from them in the Timmins newspaper . they had a branch in Timmins that sold the same products as North Bay

haven't been able to find any other ads from them and not sure how or if you can access old newspapers from North Bay ?

this one was published in the summer of 1940

reads " cool off with these delicious Macdonalds drinks "

features 4 bottles and a long list of available flavours , which include - temagami dry , temagami rickey , grapefruit , root beer , fruity orange , fruity grape

the 4 bottles shown are for - ginger beer , lime rickey , orange and temagami dry . all appear to be paper labels on plain glass 30 oz bottles

I don't have any paper label temagami dry bottles and not sure I've seen any that old , is also some more recent ones that used a paper label

have a couple acl bottles for temagami dry ( by macdonalds beverages north bay ) it was never actually bottled in temagami area just a name they used to be more appealing . although the town of Temagami recently bought the name and rights to the drink in 2020 .

some various differences between the 3 bottles , is French and English on the 10 oz bottle , font size smaller on first 6 - 1 /2 oz bottle , it also has " temagami " on neck , other has M logo

some other macdonalds beverages bottles that I have , 2 previously posted red / white , 10 oz and 12 oz bottles , 2 green 7 oz bottles for macdonalds - one reads natural flavours and other macdonalds , not sure why I don't have one in better condition as I've seen them before

and a 30 oz quart for temagami dry , some fad to label but gives you a good idea what one looks like

also have a Macdonalds bottle called the " Steinie " found it in a dump here a couple years ago , unsure the exact years it was used but likely 50's or 60's era , its a large 11 oz bottle

there is also a bottle from macdonalds called " pop o the north " its a clear 7 oz bottle , don't have one but saw a box of them on marketplace a few months back , seem to have quickly sold and disappeared though as I never saw them again , would also guess 50's or 60's era
