It’s a fabulous Coca Cola advertisement hanging out atop a building in Point Pleasant, West Virginia.
The local paper confirmed with a Coca Cola archivist that it was painted in the thirties when a local bottling company was gaining momentum. I would encourage you to read the story as it is quite informative and also talks about the Mail Pouch ad I showed you earlier this week.
Whenever I see this type of advertising – no matter how old and faded – I will always stop. I will make time, go around the block, brave the rain or whatever else is going on for a closer look. These remnants of another time, another means of advertising didn’t survive the decades to be ignored and I will gladly pay attention.
