Marburg Bottling Co.

Found this in my attic last night while I was up there spray-foaming some big drafty holes. Anyone have any information on this place? The bottle reads:

MARBURG BOTTLING CO
35th WARD
PHILADA

and on the back it says
THIS BOTTLE
NOT TO BE SOLD

the only thing I can find on Google about this place is a reference to a PhillyBlog post where someone mentions having a similar bottle and a bunch of court cases citing a Marburg Bottle Works vs. PLCB decision as precedent.

Here is a mention of it

Here is a mention of it being a brewery/bottling works on rising sun ave. By the way your bottle does look like some old beer bottles my sister has. She collects bottles.
