Standard Bottling Works


Company Names, addresses, dates1:
  Standard Bottling Works, G corner 7th street NE (1912-1913)
  Standard Bottling Works, 647 7th street NE (1914-1916)
  Standard Bottling Works, 713 G street NE (1917)
  Reading Brewing Co (L.A. Finn Agent), G near 7th NE (1913-1914)
  Gridiron Club Beverages, 708 H NE (1918-1920)

Notes:
Leo A. Finn was born about 1879, and is listed as a bottler in the 1910 Census. I list Gridiron Club beverages above because an ad in the June 21, 1920 Washington Post for Gridiron Club lists L.A. Finn as the proprietor.
