Atlas Cream Soda

SKU: SOD1020 $1.05 USD



Historic Overview

This vintage soda label is from the Atlas Bottling Company in Detroit, Michigan. The antique label measures 5” Wide x 4” High and is in mint condition. The label features a globe or atlas in the center. It went on a 1 quart bottle and we think it is from the 1950s. It says the Water used was SCIENTIFICALLY treated by using the “Aqua Pure Process” It is an interesting vintage label that will be a worthy addition to your collection.

 

The Atlas Bottling Company was started around 1929. In 1945 the original owner died and his brothers took over and ran the business successfully until they died in 1993. The children took over in 1993 and essentially ran the business into the ground. Before long, the Teamsters sued them, they stopped paying for insurance, and the business failed around 1996. The surviving family members are still upset with the apparent destruction of the business by these heirs.

Southern Plantation Georgia Cane Syrup Label
$5.75
This Georgia Cane Syrup label went on a 1 pound 2 ounce can and measures 10.85” Wide x 3” High. It was grown, packed, and guaranteed by Cane Growers Co-Operative Association in Cairo, Georgia, who was really the W. B. Roddenbery Company.This was made from pure Georgia ribbon cane and “absolutely nothing else but the juice of Georgia ribbon cane.” The label is just gorgeous and the images don’t really do it justice. It features a Southern Mansion, workers harvesting the sugar cane, and a little log cabin in the woods with a black family making the syrup. I love their slogan, “When Better Syrup is Made. We Will Make It.”   We acquired these labels from a former employee who found them in the “Old Association Warehouse” in Cairo, Ga. Dr. Seaborn Anderson Roddenbery started his medicine practice in 1862 in a horse-drawn buggy. In the same year he purchased a farm and sold open kettle sugar cane syrup from his medical buggy as he made his rounds. By 1867 he had an office and a general store that sold syrup from large cypress barrels, and people would bring their own jars and fill them with his cane syrup. Within five more years he had acquired 1000 acres and started to reduce his medicine practice, since he claimed 90% of his patients didn’t pay him anyway. In 1889 Roddenbery marketed the first pure Georgia cane syrup as "Roddenbery's Old Plantation Molasses." Around 1920 the business became known as the W. B. Roddenbery Company and he formed the Cane Growers Co-Operative Association. W. H. Roddenbery was a brother-in-law and owned a wholesale grocery store in Cairo. He had Roddenbery package syrup for him and later the W. B. Roddenbery Company packaged syrup for companies like A & P, Blue Plate, and Kraft. He changed the labels to read “packed for” instead of “packed by”. WE GUARANTEE OUR LABELS TO BE AUTHENTIC AND AS DESCRIBED!
