This is a very cool bottle that represents an important part of Chelsea, Michigan’s business history.

The Weinberg dairy farm was established in 1917. In 1947, Jay and Lucella Weinberg built a new, state-of-the-art dairy building. The dairy served ice cream, milkshakes, and sodas—a real old-fashioned soda shop.

Weinberg Dairy was sold in 1971, but the dairy building remains to this day just outside of Chelsea.

As you can see from the photos, the bottle is in great shape. What’s actually rare about it, though, is that it has its original cardboard seal top with the dairy’s name and location. It’s a very neat piece of an iconic dairy that closed over 50 years ago.
