C.P. Root Beer Co.

I found that a N.L. Lamm, Emil Ernst, and an I.W. Longacre filed for registration of fictitious name on March 10, 1924. A somewhat long lived root beer operation, 36 years or so in St. Louis. Yet these bottle are somewhat scarce. I seen advertisements for the company that would bring root beer to your party or event straight from the barrel. Maybe they sold more root beer by the glass than by the bottle.
The acl bottles, a 7 and a 12 oz date to the late 1940's. The embossed version is probable from the 1930's. Ad from 1956
