Mural Monday: Delicious and Refreshing.
Author: ATSF2921

Coca Cola relieves fatigue too for only 5 cents as the advertisment says.  Of course there are other things the soda does do, which are irrelevant to this thread.

The main focus is the steam locomotive.  Wilson's Saloon is below some other ad that is illegible to me.  Photo taken 06/27/2020 in Hope, AR just across the street catty corner from the ex-MoPac depot.

Thanks for looking.

I'm old enough to recall when those kinds of signs on buildings were ubiquitous...

That's neat, Russell.  Interesting, it must be a fairly new mural, and perhaps a recently (last 7 years) opened Wilson's Saloon.  Take a look at Google street view from July, 2013:

Bill,
I'm old enough to recall when the word ubiquitous was in daily use...
I also remember buying 5 cent Cokes and if you didn't have the 2 cents deposit the store owner would watch you drink the Coke, Pepsi, Dr Pepper or Orange Crush to make sure you returned the bottle!

I really wish that we could upvote (and downvote) posts here on Trainorders. Big upvote for this one!

The price increase of a soda from a nickle to a dime occurred in 1954 in Kansas, and I imagine elsewhere also.
