Antique Vintage Cray's Grape Soda Label made by Cray Soda Company, Holyoke, Massachusettes 1940s - 1950s

This label is becoming uncommon now and is very collectible. Great vintage sports outfits.

This American iconic company was started by Patrick J Cray in the early 1900s. The first bottling plant was located on a dead-end road east off of Northampton St south of Dwight St (now called Cray Ave). The building is still standing as is the Cray homestead located behind the plant last I knew. Cray Soda sold various flavors of soda (called tonic back then) and seltzer water to area bars, restaurants, grocery stores, and amusement parks such as Mountain Park (Mount Tom) and Hampton Ponds. They also had Cray's Package Liquor store which was attached to the bottling plant. During the 1950s the soda operation was moved to a bottling plant off of Northampton St. It appears shortly after this move the business was sold to the Ziff family a prominent MA family whose name used to be synonymous with the soda industry.

This has one slight barely noticeable ripple top left. I am not sure how it could possibly have gotten there but it seems a large supply was affected as I see the few others who have this have the same ripple. I don't think you would see it in a frame but please see pictures and videos and judge for yourself.

Imagine hanging this vintage advertising on your wall as home decor in any room!

This is within 20 years of full antique status.
The Antique Vintage Cray's Grape Soda Label, Holyoke, MA, American Icon 1940s - 1950s is far and away, one of our most popular items. People can't seem to get enough of it.
