That top would have had a washer with it, don't recall pop bottles with internal thread, thats not to say there wasn't any,I would lean more towards old beer or cider bottles maybe.

I dug one up on the allotment last week -
'Greenall Whitley & Co.' around the edge 'Warrington' across
the centre , confirming bert's memory for beer bottles !

It seems that they are remembered as being used in many types of drinks, what i can't remember, did the bottles have internal threads or was this type of cap more like a cork that was just pushed in, was the cap made from a material that had a bit of give in it and expanded a little to form a seal.

They were threaded.

The 'other' sort of bottle top was the wire type which pushed the stopper into a rubber seal eg as the photo below (photo is of a mdoern version - found on a bottle of Australian curry sauce!!)

5 Precepts of Buddhism seem appropriate. Refrain from taking life. Refrain from taking that which is not given. Refrain from misconduct. Refrain from lying. Refrain from intoxicants which lead to loss of mindfulness

When I was on holiday in the early 1940's in a village near Crewe one of my treats was to go to the village Post Office & shop & buy ginger beer in a stone bottle which had a screw top. The Lancashire Botanical Brewery used stone jars with screw tops too.
