It has been pretty difficult adding to the collection this past year with lock downs and such. I was fortunate to get a couple bottles shipped and then meet up with fellow forum member @BillHaddo. This past week I wandered though an antique store for the first since last summer and that was fantastic. Here are few items I picked up over the past couple months. I was really happy with the Soo Falls embossed a 26oz Crush! IMG_0733.JPGIMG_0737.JPGIMG_0740.JPGIMG_0744.JPGIMG_0746.JPGIMG_0705.JPG20210228_101142.jpg20210228_101236.jpg

Nice pick-ups! I've never seen most of these before. I like that Soo Falls beer, it looks a lot more like a soda than a typical beer.
I'm kinda leaning to the Soo Falls being a soda bottle. The bottle does not indicate brewery. The history I know is that Soo Falls was a brewery until the 1917 Ontario Temperance Act. Then in an attempt to stay in business produced soda and did so under the Soo Fall and Dorans names until around 1980. I'm pretty sure the Soo Fall beer bottles said brewing, at least I think I recall seeing that!! Here are a couple angles of this embossed front. Note the BRG. Co. Ltd. Another Soo Falls I have says Soo Falls Beverages in full.IMG_0733.JPGIMG_0735.JPGIMG_0736.JPG

soo falls is listed as a soda bottler in the Ontario bottle books but it might of been one of those places that did both , but it for sure did pop back then

not sure if there is certain bottles from them that were only for beer or only for pop , so it can be hard to figure out now what was used for each

the antique stores around here also re opened but when I went thru them a couple weeks ago I didn't find any bottles . haven't been to a lot of other regions of Ontario since march of last year , with covid too difficult to travel anywhere .

haven't found any metal soda cans since late last fall , I suppose I might some more when I can get back out there and explore some of the sites I've found here
