The Canada Dry story begins with pharmacist and chemist John J. After hundreds of painstaking experiments, McLaughlin achieved the perfect formula for his Canada Dry Pale Ginger Ale in 1904…… In the early days, corner drug stores were the predominant outlets for the carbonated beverage industry, McLaughlin changed all that by developing mass bottling techniques and serving Canada Dry where people gather in masses, such as ballparks and beaches….. In fact, Canada Dry pioneered many of the products and practices now considered standards throughout the beverage industry…… The pleasant qualities of ginger ale made it the perfect mixer to mask the taste of home brew during Prohibition…… For Canada Dry, the Roaring’20s roared with success, Even the high price of 35 cents didn’t hinder the progress of sales…. This neat, old sign is a rare piece of advertising from the 1950’s…… It was made in the U. A and manufactured by the M. A (Massillon-Cleveland-Akron) Sign Company….. The MCA Sign company was founded around the early 1900’s in Ohio and manufactured advertising for such companies as Coca-Cola, Miller Brewing Company, Pixar, Mobil, Shell, Amoco, Texaco, Sohio, and others for several decades…… This piece is embossed metal and it measures 26 1/4″ by 22 3/8″…..
