Budd Lemon Lime Soda

SKU: SOD1036 $1.05 USD



Historic Overview

This antique beverage label from Budd Beverages measures 4.25” Wide x 3.8” High and dates back to the 1930s. The Lemon & Lime Soda label features a Champaign glass in the center with the slogan “The Taste Tells”. The drinks were produced by Newport Bottling Works of Newport, New Hampshire.

Budd’s Beverages, Inc. was founded by Alexander Budnitz in 1916, originally planned to serve as a grocery store for the Polish immigrants of Newport, New Hampshire.  In 1922 Budd’s Beverages started using the Newport Bottling Works and began manufacturing carbonated beverages. By the 1930s, Budd’s Beverages was well known for their production of many popular sodas of the day. Some of their special brands included Dartmouth Dry, Fruit Bowl, and Old Sol. They were also distributors for Moxie, Coke, and Ted’s Root Beer (named after Ted Williams). The company served an area that included most of New Hampshire and part of Vermont.


Since winters were cold and much slower, Budd’s had a bowling alley on the top floor to take care of those really slow days. The company ceased operations in 1972.

Quabaug Pure Spring Water Label
$0.25
This fascinating label from the Quabaug Spring Water Company of North Brookfield, Massachusetts measures 3.5” Wide x 2” High and comes with quite a story. Back in the 1800s a wealthy businessman, T.C. Bates, decided to bottle the spring water from Quabaug Spring. He also spearheaded the installation of water pipes and a town reservoir in North Brookfield, which is about 20 miles from Worcester, Massachusetts. In those days it was common for shallow wells to become contaminated and the people got sick. T.C. sold his bottled water from a horse-drawn wagon throughout town. To expand he hired a New York advertising company who designed the labeling and featured King Phillip in the labels and advertising, absent from this label. Bates continued to run the company until his death in 1912. I found an interesting passage in the Annual report of the State Board of Health of Massachusetts from 1901 describing Quabaug Spring. “Situated in a small valley about 800 feet south of Bates Street. The water-shed is uninhabited except that there are two houses and a barn situated at a considerable distance from the spring which may drain towards it. Water is collected in a stone reservoir 10 feet square and 8 feet deep, situated in a bottling house. Water is pumped from the spring into a small wooden tank from which the bottles in which the water is distributed are filled. Sold in Worcester and Springfield.” Quabaug, by the way, means Red Water. I also found an old advertising booklet (see scans) for Quabaug Spring Water indicating that “It will improve your digestion, purify your blood, stimulate in many ways your whole system, and prove healthful, wholesome and life-giving.” What more can be said.
