Delicious and refreshing next to the old reliable smoking tobacco. Have a Coke and a Bull Durham? From some internet searching, the Coca Cola advert was around the time when you could get either a bottle or a glass at a soda fountain for 5cents around 1904. The Bull Durham advert was painted a lot on the sides of buildings around 1910.
It looks to me as if there has been some restoration or something done on the building with those ads somewhat like when they clean up one old painting and find an old masterpiece underneath. What do you think?
Coke and smoking. I never smoked, I gave up Coca Cola 40 years ago. A friend and I got into a pack of his dad’s Red Man chewing tobacco when we were around 10 years old. We got very sick from that experiment with the chewable stuff, and that cured both of us of anymore thoughts on chewing tobacco after that.
Tried smoking when in HS to be “cool” learned it was horrible and that was that. Never ever drank colas I like ginger-ale.
a similar old
in my town, too 🙂
Was it the same advert?
no, men’s hats, cigars & hay.
i’ve seen old coke ads, elsewhere. 🙂
I love these old signs, but one at a time. Interesting to see them like this…like finding a misprinted penny. Cheers!
It’s a slice of the past still standing in the present 🙂
I do like ghost signs…
