Rummy was a product of the Wonder Orange Company that was located at 223 West Erie Street in Chicago, Illinois.
In 1952 John Triola, Nikola Jakovac, Louis Jakovac and Sam Antinora purchased a franchise of Rummy and registered the name of Rummy Bottling Company at 1820 Marconi Avenue in St. Louis, Missouri. One of the sodas they bottled was Wonder Beverages.
The Marconi address is the same location where Sweet Sixteen Beverage Co. was located. I will post pics of that bottle.
Pic. 1 is a 1963, 7 oz. Rummy with no city/state defined on the bottle. A quite common bottle.
Pic. 2 is a 1952, 10 oz. Wonder Beverage bottle.
Pic. 3 is the back showing the bottler.
