Thanks. It's a pleasure to share. Is that a Scott from Yorkton beside the Laing's bottle?
I didn't know about the 8 oz starlite until I read about it on one of your threads. Also learned that there are different sizes of stars on the embossed starlites 4-5 I'm told. Will learn how many later this spring when I'll be able to visit him.

Yes this is fun to see!.. The Scott is from Yorkton.
I see a couple more Laing's I need.. or want! :) So I did not realize about the 'Star' sizes on the 7.5oz Starlite bottles.
It's always amazing how much we think we know until we see new stuff.

Excellent stuff! :)
So under G&J is Company Limited in script.
The Green 'Nesbitt' is Nesbitt Bros. Beverages from Saskatoon. They had a brand new bottling plant in 1940, and operated as an Orange Crush franchise. I really don't know if that was the year they opened for sure, but I believe that is the case.

Thanks for all the info. Your two embossed G&J WATTs are different than mine and older. Just goes to show a person shouldn't dismiss a bottle at a glance, probably pasted up a few like yours. I came across this Wynola, I hadn't seen one like this one before, is it very common?
Also what is the procedure for trading or selling

Dominion bottlers Saskatoon is a bottler of soft drinks. Dominion glass made bottle and jars plus other glass items for a lot of bottlers and manufacturers
Company names were used by different companies that add to the confusion. There is a Hub beverages in Saskatoon and there are some Hub bottlers, beverages in the USA and I think in BC and the Maritimes.

So my G&J with the older script is dated 1938, my other that is the same as yours is dated 1955....which seems late given you have one in the same style but with the ACL instead of embossed.
Hey what is printed on that 7up heel?....and what's on the base?
Usually trading is carried out via direct email given out in the PM ststem, better to exchange that info there rather than on open forum.
Oh BTW...that Wynola is relatively common, I had not ever seen one until a couple years back but now I see several out there.

So your G&J WATT beside the one with the script is the same as mine? in your picture it looks like the lettering is over the art deco.
DOMINION BOTTLING WKS. LTD CONTENTS 7 OZs
I think it's an O in the diamond and 6

Not sure what the PM system is or how to get into it.
