looks good with the light filtering through and a nice tint, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Ayush, they were nicely lit and coloured.
You captured the back lighting so nicely! The front lighting was certainly no good!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Ell', you had to pick your spot in that place smile

Lovely bottles, I hope they will survive for ever.
Frank L Croston.: They are, Philine. Me too, looks like one has lasted since 1924.

Those were the day's, Frank. Great colours and love the light! Wishful thinking of course, I hope the bottles will have a comeback.
Frank L Croston.: I'm with you Astrid, the light was so nice.

Delaware Punch is a fruit-flavored soft drink. Its formula uses a blend of fruit flavors, with grape (Methyl anthranilate) being the most prominent. It is not carbonated, and is caffeine-free.

Delaware Punch was created by Thomas E. Lyons in 1913. The brand is currently owned by The Coca-Cola Company.

The beverage is difficult to find, but is still served in some restaurants in Houston, Texas, including James Coney Island. It is also sold in certain grocery stores in Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas. Delaware Punch can also be found for sale on eBay. Blooms Candy in Carrollton, TX regularly stocks Delaware Punch in single cans and 12 packs. It is also sold in Louisiana in 20oz. bottles. Delaware Punch concentrate can be purchased from several online soft drink retailers. The bottled form is sold in Guatemala and Mexico. Delaware Punch was commonly sold at the New Orleans drug store chain K&B, before it was bought by Rite Aid in 1997.

Delaware Punch is named for the Delaware grape cultivar from which its flavor is derived. The grape was first grown in Delaware County, Ohio, and the drink therefore has no affiliation with the state of Delaware.

Delaware Punch is available at Walmart stores.

This is a nice shot Frank, one doesn't seem to see much in the way of glass bottles these days.

Love the lighting and your close up view, creates intrigue! smile
