also saw a bottle from Cobalt in an antique store in southern Ontario a couple years ago , never bought it but was intrigued enough to snap a pic of it

for a bottler called " Victor Sunell " appears to be from the same time period as others , he's also not listed in any Ontario bottle books . and not sure I can find any info of him but he was in cobalt bottling

Interesting Pics & Story & Cool Bottles. At first when you said Cobalt I was thinking I'd see some Blue Bottles LOL.

there is also some embossed and acl bottles from Cobalt but not as many as town had long since peaked by then , so fewer people and only a couple bottlers remained

bought this one a couple years ago as an example as it has some obvious damage but a dominion glass art deco bottle for Cobalt Aerated Water co , they lasted until 1950's , assume its 30's or 40's era

seems to be less common one to find , did see another one at last bottle show and was in better condition

also a bottler in Cobalt called " Trudel " , some of his bottles say Kirkland lake on them but some are from Cobalt .

I have an embossed bottle that says " trudels beverages " no town names on it , had assumed it was from Kirkland Lake but likely also used in Cobalt

is some acl bottles too ( 7 oz and 30 oz ) , don't have any but have some pics from some that were on ebay once

It's a shame there aren't any cobalt blue bottles from Cobalt!

I've got one of those Macdonald bottles, I assume they must be pretty common because I got it for a fiver at a bottle show a couple years back. I'd like to get one of those ACLs with the mining graphic.

I don't think the acl is that common , I've only since it online before , not even sure if I've seen one in person .

the macdonalds cobalt seem to be common and the diggers from Sudbury have dug a whole lot more of them based on there video's . although there is some colour variations and such , its still a neat bottle

From the Pics I'd like to dig some Privy's in that Town? LEON.
I'm not sure if there digging privy's there , if you watch there video's on youtube ( found under northern Ontario bottling digging ) it more looks like there digging pits and old dumps in the ground .

not sure if they are from the town itself ( cobalt area ) or further in the bush , like old mines or abandoned farms , either way seem to have found a seemingly endless supply of dumps to dig there

cobalt is also part of the " Canadian shield " so its much more rocky than down south , the town has also suffered not 1 but 2 devastating town wide fires , 1909 and 1977 so not sure if many old buildings are left from the original town

I also came across a picture of a 30 oz Trudel's beverage bottle that had been posted to ebay by same seller as others a couple years ago .

red and white acl , doesn't say a town so could of been used in Cobalt or Kirkland Lake
