Here is what I believe to be a rare Ocean Breeze Porcelain Sign dated 51. I did a little research and I believe this soda was bottled in Horse Cave, Kentucky. Here is some more information that I dug up about the company:
402-17-12, 207 E. Main Street, Professional Arts Building; Ocean Breeze, HT-851, 1922. “Refreshing as an Ocean
Breeze” was just one of the mottoes of Dr. W.A. McGuire’s light, carbonated drink bottled here briefly in the 1920s.
McGuire’s friend and partner Charlie Branstetter built this two-story brick building to house the bottling works. For
those who could remember having tasted Ocean Breeze, it was a delicious lemony drink, not unlike Sprite or Fresca.
Tradition has it that the drink might have found a wider audience had not 7-UP come on the scene just as Dr. Mc-
Guire was ready to market Ocean Breeze nationally. Currently the building houses lawyers’ and doctors’ offices.
