Historical information

This soda syphon used for making carbonated drinks is a French bottle made about the beginning of the 20th century.


This bottle is of considerable antiquarian interest but unfortunately has no known local significance. It may, however, be the one given to the Historical Society by Mr and Mrs S. Lindsay of Koroit Street, Warrnambool. It will be useful for display.
