came across a picture of this bottle online and though it was interesting , posted to a buy and sell site but don't think it was for sale more to generate interest and shown as an example . heard of this bottler before but don't recall ever seeing a beehive style bottle with acl writing . would assume its 30's-40's era

appears to read " The Nipigon Bottling Works Nipigon Ont , contents 6 fl oz "

not really that familiar with Nipigon , its a small town in Northern Ontario sort of near thunder bay . it had its own bottler for some time , listed as operating from 1915-1960's and was also the local coca cola bottler . listed as the " Nipigon Bottling Works "

also a red/white acl bottle and an embossed bottle which i've seen before but don't have either .

haven't found any old newspaper ads for a while but searched around and came across 2 from this bottler , both from 1960's , and both were printed cause of new businesses opening up in Nipigon . one for a variety store and other a new newspaper in its first issue .

one mentions it bottles coca cola ,but also says it bottles soft drinks of all kinds .

There is another slightly different style of the red/white acl that you posted. Both are hard to find.

that one appears to be similar to the one i had seen online but in a clear 7 oz bottle , wonder if there'd be a green 7 oz bottle too ? most smaller bottlers did ginger ale
I’ve yet to see a green Nipigon bottle either.
