Yesterday, I was doing a search for Diana Coal Oil since I recently reposted it, and I found my image on the Our Lady of Loreto’s Photo’s of Old East New York page (Dominick Mondelli, Webmaster). Here are some highlights from Donny’s page of old East New York filled with great fading ads and other glimpses of Brooklyn’s past.
According to Wikipedia:
The Brooklyn Bottling Group is one of the largest independently owned beverage and food company in the United States. Founded by Jack Miller in 1936, the company started out by selling seltzers and syrups door to door in Brooklyn neighborhoods. The second generation, Arnold Miller, acquired the first bottling facility and the company began to produce soft drinks in 1947. In its third generation, Eric Miller has expanded the company’s line up to include fruit juices.
The Brooklyn Bottling Group bottling facility is based in Milton, New York and has warehouses and distribution centers in Brooklyn, Miami, Orlando and Atlanta. The company manufactures, distributes, imports and sell over 50 brands of soft drinks, juices, food and household items. Its products ship to 23 states across the country, primarily in the east coast.
The company was once involved in a controversy with its soft-drink line “Tropical Fantasy” in the early 1990s. A rumor spread throughout with flyers claimed that the Ku Klux Klan secretly owned the company and its line of Tropical Fantasy soft drinks would sterilize black men. The rumors were later found to be false and the company continued to grow. – Wikipedia
A senior member on the Bevnet users group warned:
I want all members to be aware of Brooklyn Bottling. I used these people to fill for me one time and one time was enough. We had to throw away thousands of improperly filled cans. Their response has been … Oh well sorry. Do business with these people at your own risk !!! Beware ! – SumPoosieCat – Bevnet.com (Complaints & Rants)
