“Pepsi-Cola, first introduced as Brad’s drink in 1893 in North Carolina, has been a popular soda company since 1902. In the early 1900s, the company started distributed the drink in bottles. Since then, the bottles have come in different styles. The bottle found in our collection is dated to 1955. The bottle has the “wave” pattern on the shoulder that was started in the 1940s and came in two color variations: red and white, or red, white, and blue. With this new wave pattern, a double dot logo was used, but discontinued in 1948. The bottle in our collection has one dot between the Pepsi and Cola logo which places the bottle after 1950 when one dot began to be used. The date can also be found at the bottom of the bottle. The year is usually the second number.” (Fall 2017 – Group 1).
