we have some of these old advertisments around as well, nice shot. If you want to wander down my road I’m home.

ah, the taste of Coke in a glass bottle. Or Dr. Pepper. God this brings back memories of Texas summers and fifty cent (if I recall correctly) bottles of soda at the corner market...

Cocaine makes you smart, eh? Who knew. ; )

I think I could use some tonic for my brain, too.

I LOVE those old building ads. There are a bunch in downtown Tacoma that I shot in b&w.

(If you go onto my FB page, I have a photo album of Tacoma)

Damn, I'm old enough to remember bottles of pop costing a nickel!

My high school had the last nickel Coke machine in New Jersey, possibly the world, and it broke down late in my senior year.

I seem to have been the only person whose eyes watered whenever I drank Coke.
