    I believe Canada Dry was established in 1890. The first ads I find for the St. Louis area are in 1925 for Ginger Ale. This beverage was distributed by The Goddard Grocery Co. and by St. Louis Crystal Water & Soda Co. Product was shipped in a Hostess Package that contained 12 bottles of Ginger Ale. Size not mentioned.
    In April of 1939 it is announced that the Canada Dry Bottling Co. of St. Louis is now ready to serve the public with Delicious Canada Dry Flavor Beverages. Its location is at 3029 Olive Street.
    pic #1 Shows the hostess package and two St. Louis marked bottles. Clear 10 oz. dated 1948 and the Spur dating 1940.
    pic#2 shows a 6 oz. Spur and an assortment of 7 oz. bottles dating from 1946 to 1965
    pic#3 shows an assortment of 10 & 12 oz. bottles dating from 1948 up to 1966
    pic#4 shows four 1970's one way paper label bottles and a 1960's paper label Ginger Ale.

      Thanks iggy!
      We all know there are hundreds of different sizes, shapes and flavors of Canada Dry out there. It would be fun to try and find them all.

      That's interesting history. Is there info on Canada Dry in cans dispensed from vending machines?
      I remember buying cans of CD ginger ale from a vending machine in the early to mid 1960s. I think it may have before the days of pop top cans or maybe CD just had not started using them.
      After the vending machine dispensed the can, you had to place the can in an opener which was a recessed area on the front of the machine. Then you pulled down on a lever which brought down a triangular punch onto the top of the can to make a hole in it.
      It was fun to operate the opener but the punch was always gummy with a black built-up residue of ginger ale....the thing probably never got cleaned! But we drank from the opening it made in the cans and never got sick, amazingly!

      Well Watchsearcher, that's a machine I haven't seen before, but would have liked to.
      I don't research cans or machines at all, only bottles that are in my collection.
