I finally found a moment to try to photograph some bottle details. Not sure if I can reply more than once to your comment, but I will start with the Orange bottle. The letters on the bottom are "R inside a triangle" and A204 9
The "R in a triangle" could be Reed Glass Company, Rochester New York?
Each of the different flavours seems to be possibly from different eras. Will try to reply again with a different flavour.
I don't recognize that R mark, that's an unusual one for Canada. We don't get many US-made sodas up here. Looks like 1930s-ish, but the other two look earlier, like 1910s-20s. Could be because they were re-using the bottles for a while, or just purchased them from different glassmakers using equipment from different eras. The labels appear to be from the same era, and look to me to date to around the 30s or so.

They are from the 30’s. Here is an add from a brochure that maritime beverages put out in 1985 marking the 90th anniversary of Maritime Beverages Limited.
