    I believe this to be from the late 40's to early 50's. If anyone has more info I'd love to hear it :)

      The website from pw states most everything I found as well.

      This company also made Swanee, Bubble-Up and Jo-Jo Chocolate Drink.

      Also I found reference that the bottling plant was at 865 Lee Street, Atlanta, Georgia, not sure how accurate that is.

      THANK YOU @Nadisse & @PW! If only I could figure out how to my picture around! :)

      I would really like to talk to you about this clock. my email is straub3939@aim.com or my phone # is 770-653-4623. Thanks you.

      My grandfather Benjamin J. Frink owned Bob's Cola, he opened a small storefront bottling operation in 1940 and expanded the business into a $250,000 state of the art factory and distribution center by 1947.

      Bob’s-Cola distributied half a dozen flavors throughout the Southeast, Midwest, and Texas. However, my grandfather died in 1951 and by 1955 Bob’s-Cola had ceased production.
