  • Hi

    Thanks for posting. You have a soda bottle with a crown top which likely is late teens or 1920s. Not sure why you mention BOSTON??

    I frequently cite this fact about soda bottles of this era - there were literally thousands and thousands of simple, local operations scattered across the US in towns of all sizes. Likely many were family operations running out of a garage or barn. All that is left to history are the bottles and maybe an entry in a phone book or city directory.

  • Sorry was meant to say embossed not Boston I have tried local directories and can’t find anything on the bottle
