Eric,

Is there a possible way to get a scanned copy of that book page showing that info. and a scanned copy of the front cover ?

Then I can "maybe" just "maybe" find another bottle that looks like mine and the one of jdunlap.

WOW, this is almost like Christmas !!!

The Car Show I started for the City of Auburn Hills is on the banks of the Clinton River (Riverside Park) - - - - now I will be watching that river close. Old maps show a Mill, and two other water powered businesses right where the park is. Would this be a good site to check out?

The Oakland bottles are really common. There are 2-3 variants. I leave them when I dig them.
There is a Pontiac Bottling Works bottle, also.

Yesterday me & my digging buddy Tom found 3 of these along Clinton River near Pontiac. Say's OLIVERS from Pontiac Michigan & Coca Cola bottling co. We were not there long & only found these 3 & had to leave earlier then expected when confronted with some rather strange uncomfortable circumstances. LEON

Carbonated beverages possible. There was only 1 brewery in Pontiac near that time frame of Prohibition & that was the Pontiac Brewery. It closed up in 1915 & Reopened in 1933 as Wolverine brewery. Whats odd about that is Prohibition started in 1919 in Michigan if I remember right so the brewery would of ran until 1919 & then just changed there name to Pontiac Beverage company during the 1920's like most other Breweries did back then to stay afloat during Prohibition. I do not see any info of Pontiac Brewery doing this? LEON.
