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.
