Pablo & Co Sodas from New Orleans

Sebastian Pablo started his soda & mineral water business in 1849 at No. 70 Elysian Fields until 1855. In 1856 Pablo & Co. was formed at 334-336 Royal St. The street was renumbered in about 1860 to 270-272 Royal St. This accounts for the pontiled and non-pontiled variants at that address. During the Civil War several of the local bottlers such as P.Pons, H. Stewart and T.S. Waterman joined forces with Pablo and then after the war went their seperate ways. In 1877, Pablo combined with several of the other selzer water manufacturers to form the Crescent City Selzer & Mineral Water Manufacfactory (See the CCS&M Co bottles on the website) at the same 270-272 Royal Street address.(Information by Richard Clavin & Joel Ferguson)
