my dad had a Wishing Well distributorship in Chatham Ontario for as long as I can remember. He and his brother delivered it to the Chatham Kent area. The warehouse was on Willowmac Ave. They got their orders from London, ON. There were several flavors that were the absolute best but no colas. He died in 1959 and my uncle closed the business a year or 2 later.

Wishing Well was as common as Coca Cola when I was a boy in London and Toronto Ontario in the 40s and 50s. Their bottles were distinctive and the flavours I recall were orange, cream soda, lime or lemon lime, and root beer.

When I Was growing up in the 50"s /60"s, wishing well orange, lime and cream soda, was the best. I have yet to find anything close to it's flavour in others yet. other greats were, the old original hires root beer, ginger beer, and the pure spring drinks. To bad someone couldn't have the same recipe.

Not only did Wishing Well have great flavours, their pop came in 11 ounce bottles ! (a big deal if you were a young boy). My favourite was Black Cherry, but their cream soda was excellent.

Couldn't find detailed history of Wishing Well, or the maker, National Dry, but item images suggest 1920s or 30s to start. eBay has vintage metal signs, and an old wooden shipping crate, plus several bottles. Metal signs with thermometers from the 1950s were common. The company may or not have been tied to Canada Dry. London, Ontario. Reminds me of "All In the Family," when Archie Bunker, at work, mistakenly shipped parts to London, England instead of Ontario, and lost his Christmas bonus for it.
