D T J Lyle of Strood. I have a ginger beer embossed bottle which has never been opened and still has ginger beer in it. My mum and uncle both worked for Lyles at Strood in the 50s.

Hi. I know it was a long time ago this was posted but my mum and uncle both worked for Lyle in Strood. If you want to know a bit more contact me.

--- Quote from: darrenlink on October 23, 2011, 11:03:26 ---Thank you so much snodlandmalc, sheppey_bottles and seafordpete for all your wonderful responses.  Seeing the photos of the mineral water factories and all of those Lyle mineral water bottles is fascinating.  I wish I had such a wonderful collection of Lyle bottles!!!

I found the following website and the style of the bottles is very similar
http://www.swanseabottles.com/Brighton%20page.htm
Does the style of bottle originate from south Wales?  Arthur John Monkley Lyle and Daniel Thomas James Lyle were born in Cardiff.

Snodlandmalc: The D.T.J. Lyle bottle on the far right of your photo has Strood & Crayford below the crest.  It looks as though Daniel Thomas James Lyle also had a factory in London Road, Crayford as shown in the following photo:  (I wonder where the Strood site was?)

Another photo of the same building (by the same person) suggests the building was also a former R. White's factory!!!

AnDy: My dad believes that my uncle has a Lyle mineral water bottle with a marble in the top.  I will speak to him soon.

seafordpete: I see what you mean about the brackets on the King Street, Maidstone building.  They are in the same position as the bottle in the photo posted by sheppey_bottles.  I had a good look on street view.

I may well take a trip to Maidstone tomorrow to take a look at the building and visit maidstone museum.

sheppey_bottles: I like the photo of the Lyle works on fire which you think is Tunbridge Wells.  Are you able to confirm that this was the business of Alexander Charles Lyle?
The following link shows his death details.
http://www.london-gazette.co.uk/issues/39731/pages/6849/page.pdf
Do you have any idea where this photo was taken in Tunbridge wells?  He died at Chatswood, Culverden Park, Tunbridge Wells, Kent but that may have been his home rather than his business.

Thank you all so much for your help.

I own an original ELVEY & CO DOVER,  glass bottle
found when digging my garden many years ago.
Is it an important item?
Please let me know
Thank you and Kind regards

Hope someone here finds that of interest.

sheppey_bottles:
I am still collecting old Embossed beer bottles from Kent breweries that have long gone and I here include an updated list of the items I have found so far. If you have any that are not on this list I would be very pleased to hear from you. Thankyou, SB.
