Tuesday Treasures

Tom hosts Tuesday's Treasures.

April 2014 - Charlotte NC

Repost from 2014.

Coca-Cola Bottling Company Consolidated, headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, is the largest independent Coca-Cola bottler in the United States, producing, marketing, and distributing nonalcoholic beverages—primarily licensed products of the Coca-Cola Company -- in North Carolina, South Carolina and West Virginia, and portions of Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Florida.

This 1920’s building used to be one of Coca Cola’s bottling locations in Charlotte.
The sign is a modern reproduction of the original, and spells “Charlotte Coca Cola Bottling Co.” along with
an image of the iconic Coca Cola bottle.




Coca Cola has an interesting web site.

  1. there was a Coca Cola bottling plant in Elizabethtown KY years ago...after it's demise it was used as a Coca Cola museum and I don't know what it is today. I do know that a two liter Coca Cola (or pick another size) today has no comparison to the five cent bottle of the famous beverage.

    1. I agree with all of you! Ice cold Coke in a glass bottle! The best I ever had was in Mexico!

  9. I love this vintage sign/mural! I have always enjoyed the Coca Cola television commercials, I find they are quite well done. Thanks so much for sharing, and warm greetings from Montreal, Canada. :) I love your CN Tower header!
