The White Rock Bottling Co made our town famous years ago . The Building is still there but in pretty bad shape . The President of Company lived a few yards away in a very beautiful huge Victorian house that my other played in as a child . Several years ago myself and mother were invited to that house to look at it inside to see what my Mom could remember on how it looked originally . The house still stands on White Rock Street . The Logo Psyche ( lady with wings looking into spring water is one of the most gorgeous Logo's I have ever seen to this day .
History . She appeared on all the bottles and many advertising articles as well as paintings and signs.
The company was established in 1871 by pharmacist H.M. Colver in Waukesha, Wisconsin. Potawatomi Indians and settlers believed that the nearby White Rock natural spring had special medicinal powers, so White Rock Beverages started out as destination for vacationers and health seekers. By 1876, the company was bottling and distributing the natural spring water throughout the country.

    Thank you Bro :-) There are statues of her that were displayed in stores that are wonderful but carry a hefty price tag . I love her and I miss my Mother who grew up on that street .

    Great post, I still have a picture of Psyche and cupid as a statue that I had my eye on a number of years ago at auction. It went fairly high, and now wish I never missed it as it was one in a million, my jaw would drop to the floor every time I passed it if I had it.

    How nice for you & your Mom to visit the house years later.
    I can see how these images would bring up bittersweet memories for you.
    I didn't even know cupid had such a beautiful partner.
    I will have to keep my eye open for Psyche.
