Finding Family

One woman's obsession with family history.

Yes, I’m still on the historical advertising bandwagon (I probably won’t fall off!).  This time however I’ve been digging around for old Coca Cola ads.  Though not quite as shocking as cigarette advertising, it’s still interesting to see how they’ve marketed their product over the years (especially during times of war).

1. “It is a perfect blend of pure, natural products…” [1938]

1938

2. Coca-Cola’s Gone to War [1943]

1943

3. Wacko, Digger! [1944]

1944

4. Have a “Coke” = Aloha No [1944]

1944 - 2

 5. “Have a Coke are the words heard all around…” [1946]

1946

 6. Join me at lunch…have a Coke [1946]

1946 - 2

 7. Keep Coca-Cola handy… [1958]

1958

 8. Things go better with Coke [1968]

1968
