Description

From KolaWars: Atlanta by Dennis I. Smith:
"Rye-Ola was invented in Birmingham by Jefferson J. Peek, who was formerly involved with the creation of Nervola and Wiseola.
The Atlanta Rye-Ola Bottling Works was established in 1910 by John Bradberry. The plant was originally located at 92 North Forsyth...
J.J. Peek moved his Rye-Ola Company from Birmingham to Atlanta in 1912. Offices were in the Rhodes Building for the next six years. Peek reorganized as the Peek Beverage Company in 1916 and moved to new quarters at 682 Dekalb. He sold extracts as both Rye-Ola and Peek's Cola. Bottlers were established as far as Oregon in the mid-1920s. The firm moved to Dallas, Texas in the 1920s."
We have Nervola and Wiseola bottles in the collection as well.
We have 3 Rye-Olas from the same box.
