Old Store Selling Coca Cola
This is a picture of an old storefront in Alabama taken in 1935 by Walker Evans. The picture shows a vintage Coca Cola sign. It was on this day (May 8, 1886) that Coca Cola was served for the first time. The first one was served up at the Jacob's Pharmacy in Atlanta. Coca Cola was invented by John Pemberton, a wounded Confederate veteran from the Civil War.
