    Back in the long ago people weren't as thirsty as they are now so drinks came in 7 ounce bottles. I would inhale those myself, may need three or four. I am thinking 7 Up started making this bottle in 1946. That is the year that repeatedly comes up when researching this bottle.
    The distinctive feature for this is the swimsuit lady on the left of the logo. On the back it says The "Fresh Up" Drink.
    Noting it was bottled in San Bernardino which is at the base of the mountain. San Bernardino used to be big in pop culture. Several fast food chains got their start there including McDonalds. Also where motorcycle gangs originated including the Hell's Angels.

      The numbers on the bottom should determine the yr. I can't quite make them out though. Looks like an Owens Illinois bottle, the number to the left of the mark should be the yr.

      Thank you very much iggy. I see a 23 to the left of the makers mark and a 47 to the right so I would guess 1947. I'll look up the makers mark tonight.

      fortapache, the '23' is the plant at which the bottle was made. Los Angeles. And yes the 47 is for 1947. Made by the Owens Illinois Bottle Co. I love 7up collectables.

      You guys got it for the age.
      As for thirst, Squirt took care of that (according to their labels). ;)

      Thank you very much SpiritBear. I'll take a Squirt bottle too. I do need to revise the description a bit.
