    St. Louis Crystal Water & Soda Co. started out as The Crystal Water Co. in 1893 at the corner of Channing & Franklin here in St. Louis, Missouri. The company started out big with a huge factory and distributed their products all over the country. In 1900 or 1901 they moved to 2020 Walnut St. In 1906 the company name was changed to the St. Louis Crystal Water & Soda Co. Sometime in the early 1920's they relocated to 704 S. Boyle.

    The Calla Lily was featured on a lot of their bottles.

    Pic 1 shows basically the same bottle in three different sizes, 10 oz, 24 oz & 64 oz
    Pic 2 shows the 64 oz without the Calla Lily and a paper label version.
    Pic 3 is a monster sized 5 gallon bottle, which at some time I would like to get the dispenser for it.

      This company was created and owned by my Great Grandfather. The Calla Lily was his wife Minnie's - favorite flower. The building on S. Boyle was torn down several years ago - having been bought out by Anheuser Bush.
