Coca-Cola history began in 1886 when the curiosity of an Atlanta pharmacist, Dr. He created a flavored syrup, took it to his neighborhood pharmacy, where it was mixed with carbonated water and deemed excellent by those who sampled it… Pembertons partner and bookkeeper, Frank M. Robinson, is credited with naming the beverage CocaCola as well as designing the trademarked, distinct script, still used today….. This old cooler is a killer piece of advertising from the 1950’s….. After the realization that soda would sell better if it was chilled, Coca Cola retailers wanted to figure out a way to keep them cold, even before the advent of electric coolers….. At first, it was done by using wooden barrel halves, which were filled with ice…. These barrels would have a wooden lid over them and on the sides, would have the Coca Cola logo stenciled on them, just as this cooler does….. This piece is in beautiful shape, despite having some chips and light rust, its very solid and it even has the original tray….. It measures 18 1/2″ by 13″ and it stands 18 tall….. This is truly a great find for any Coca Cola enthusiast…… Thanks for looking, Be sure to check out our other stuff for sale.
