100+ Old Coca Cola Ads And Posters
This is a wonderful collection of Coke ads dating back to the early 1900’s. Coke’s logo has not changed from it’s inception in the 1890’s, giving it a strong continuity throughout the last 100+ years. From a marketing and advertising viewpoint, it’s fascinating to see how the designs, layouts and focal points of ads have evolved  throughout this time frame. I love how Coke has been described as a “The Ideal Brain Tonic” and “Delicious with Food”. There’s a great triangular bottle carry case design as well. This is well worth the look.
