Found this old Coca-Cola tin sign recently, and was struck by how the design graphics anticipate Pop Art imagery, with the stacked and repeated bottles. That green shadow on the right just makes the whole thing. I've seen thousands of Coke ads in my time, but I can't recall seeing this one. My guess is that it was made at least a couple of decades before the Sixties.
And so that gives me an excuse to put up a picture of the most awesome Pop sign, ever, this one for Campbell's Soup.
