The 2012 Canyonville show was one of the largest I've seen over years. Along with a very large selection of insulators and bottles were several great displays. This display shows the similar colors that EC&M's and western sodas share. It has long been thought that EC&M's were indeed produced by the San Francisco glasshouses. Most of these 1870 California sodas blown in San Francisco are very close in color to their EC&M counterparts and help to validate that EC&M's were produced in the West. Thank you to Bill Ostrander for the picture and Bruce Silva for the loan of the display case.
