Howdy Orange Soda Label
This friendly label measures 3.9” Wide x 2.2” Tall and was for “Howdy” Orange Soda produced by the Pioneer Bottle Works in Davenport, Washington. We think the label dates back to the 1920s – 1930s. Obviously, if you drank this soda you’d be saying Howdy to just about everyone you met.
Pioneer Bottle Works was started in 1904 by Arthur Einbeck and his wife Emma in Davenport, Washington. The business was successful and as it expanded, customers were able to order their soda delivered by wagon and then by truck and train. Pioneer Bottle Works serviced communities along the railroad routes of the Northern Pacific and Great Northern Railroads.
Arthur died in 1916 at the young age of 44. After his death, Emma continued the business, aided by her children, Art and Gertrude, until she died in 1968. The business was left to the two kids who continued to run it successfully until Art, known locally as “Pioneer Pops”, died in 1982. It was the last privately operated bottling works in Washington State and produced 26 different flavor choices including Raspberry, Loganberry, and Pineapple sodas; Lemon Sour; Creme Beer; Chocolate Fiz, Lemon Fiz, and Kola Fiz: Ginger Ale; Cherry and Grape Nips; and finally Howdy's Orange Soda.
