125th Anniversary Coca Cola Bottle Tue, 05/10/11 8:54 PM (permalink)
 
 

 

The Hutchison, a reproduction of Coca-Cola’s first bottle in honor of the product's 125th

anniversary. (Is this truly what the bottle looked like in 1886, Michael Hoffman?)

    Great looking bottle.  Any word on whether they're celebrating with real cane sugar?

      I wonder if that woman on the bottom of the box is Noreen Nash.
       
      Maybe she was the Pepsi girl.
       
      Carry on...

        It looked just like that Kurt. Except, there were three thin black stripes across the red cap. They signified that the pharmacist who developed the syrup was in love with a sergeant on the Atlanta police force. It was a sort of secret love note.

          Maybe she was the Pepsi girl.


          Would her father have allowed it?

            Guess not since he owned a Coca Cola bottling plant.
             
            I had dinner with her a couple of weeks ago.  She's still beautiful.
             
            She was one of the Coca Cola girls in the early ads.

                My niece has been dating her grandson for over 6 years. I see her every now and then.

                    that IS interesting. I own a vintage advertising tin with her pic on it. It's on the wall in my kitchen...which is a coca-cola themed/decorated kitchen.
                     
                    so, yeah, wow! very cool.

                      Here's a picture taken a few weeks ago.
                       
                      My youngest niece, Madison on the left, Noreen and my mother.  It's my middle niece that goes with her grandson.
