: : : : : I recently acquired a book of complete formulae for the Majestic Bottling Co. which was hand typed by the chemist Wm. E.S. Stoneman. The company is listed in the 1922 San Francisco city directory. Can anyone share information on this company or chemist?

: : : : According to the San Francisco City Directories (available at the San Francisco Public Library - Newspaper Center):

: : : : This is the listing in the 1922 directory:

: : : : "Majestic Bottling Co., J W Goetze pres, E H Goetze sec, mfrs ginger ale and exclusive bottlers Hires, Coco [Coca] Cola and Whistle, 36 Beideman nr Ellis, tel West 373."

: : : : Your chemist, Wm Stoneman may be Stanley Stoneman, who appears in 1921 (but not 1919, 1920 or 1922, 1923):

: : : : "Stoneman, Stanley chemist r 1177 Ellis"

: : I recently found a bottle in an excavation for a new building here in San Francisco. It is straight sided and is molded with "Majestic Beverage" below the neck and "Majestic Bottling Co. Cal. Bottle registered. Contents 6 1/2 fld ozs"

: We also recently found a 6 1/2 oz bottle in the basement of an old house in Oakland. it is the same as described above by Ron. it does have some manufacturing wear at the bottom. We sell on ebay and plan on putting it up for auction soon under the ID of vallejo_carl. Karen and David

Hi - I just bought what appears to be a soda pop bottle that is old and says "Majestic" across the top part, and in small lettering under that it says "artificially colored - flavor and fruit acid added" . In the middle is the logo with a large M and a small B underneath. Under that it says "San Francisco". The glass is clear and has a design imprinted on it. It also says "7 fluid ounces". Just under where the cap would have been is a 13. I'd guess 1930s because of the art deco design.
