Antique Bottle Collecting Hobby News ~ Potpourri for April 2013

Bully Good Ale ~ Krantz Brewing ~ Findlay Ohio
This neat pre-pro label appeared on ebay recently.

~ Potpourri ~ 

It's time for the end-of-the-month miscellaneous wrap up already. How time flies. So here are a few things I thought were interesting.

A display case in the center room on the ground floor. It contains the timeline of bottles, showing examples from 1760 to 1920. 


Kudos to Bram Hepburn for his participation in the Woodman Museum's display of Dover NH bottles.




North Pole Soda Factory
"Captain Ángel Rivero Méndez founded the Polo Norte Fabrica de Sodas, a soft drink company. Méndez is credited with the invention and elaboration of the "Kola Champagne" which became, and still is, a very popular soft drink in Puerto Rico. It is also elaborated and sold in other countries, including the United States." -- What a wonderful tile facade. Love the bottling machine on the right. -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ángel_Rivero_Méndez
