I recently bought this bottle at the flea market, it is labeled Victory Beverages with the logo "Twice as Good....Half as Much". On the back of the bottle it reads: Bottled by S. S. Anderson, Hattiesburg, Mississippi. I saw where a 40s Nugrape from the same bottler had been on ebay. I'm pretty sure this is from the 40s given its name and the style of the bottle any information would be greatly appreciated, Thanks.

Hi, I can't help much with Anderson but Hattiesburg had 2 companies in the mid 20's. One was Chero-Cola and one was Coke. Victory was also listed in the same reference in Chicago and elsewhere but not Hattiesburg.
This info from "The Bottlers and Beverage Manufactures Universal Encyclopedia" of 1925.
I hope this helps. Eric

Victory Beverage

Thanks for the info!
I have two Victory Beverage bottles bottled in Hattiesburg, MS in the 1920's. One actually has a date on it of "23. One has the "Victory Beverage" embossed in the "V" and one without but a small "V" on the back of the lower neck. I'm from Hattiesburg and I can find very little info on S.S. Anderson. Any help would be appreciated.

These were made up during WWII to be sold at Camp Shelby here in Hattiesburg. As far as I know there are 3 different styles.

R.T., I recently came across this post about a Victory Beverage bottle from Hattiesburg Ms. My name is Art Anderson and I'm from Georgia. S.S. Anderson was my grandfather. He had a bottling company in Hattiesburg back in the 30's through the 40's. He primarily bottle Nu Grape and Bux sodas but he did bottle other company developed beverages. You indicated that you would like more information about S.S. Anderson. Please let me know what you would like to know and I help you out the best that I can.
