HOW IT BEGAN

Coca Cola, an iconic brand around the world, has updated its image many times since it began in 1886. When the 'curve' was first introduced on the can to symbolise the trade mark bottle, I kept the old style and then picked up new ones (sometimes literally) as they came along. When plastic bottles were introduced I saved the glass ones - not expecting them to make a comeback in recent years. My main interest is in the packaging and advertising but I have bought - and been given - the odd promotional item. Even so, my total outlay to date is only 8 ! 

I found the remains of a Coca Cola sign in a stream, cleaned it up and displayed it as shown above with my cans. In fairness to the opposition I also have some varieties of Pepsi cans which can be seen below. Click to see my photos of COKE SIGNS around the world or some of my ADVERTS.
