Great. I love these old ads.


That's kind of scary to learn Pepsi was invented by a pharmacist.
I haven't had a Pepsi in decades, but in this heat it does sound good.
Nice old sign.

I love that expression, "libation-intense."


That's one beautiful old ad!

East Gwillimbury WOW!

Nice capture of this old ad. So Pepsi was created in North Carolina! Was it invented in response to Coca Cola's success? I certainly drank my share of both when I was a kid.

Dear East G...bury WOW!

Yes, Coke was invented in Columbus, Georgia by John Pemberton in 1885. Originally, it was a cocawine; however, by 1886, the drink was revised as Coca Cola and sold in an Atlanta, GA drugstore. Pepsi came along in 1898 and the brand was trademarked in 1903 (all Wikipedia info).

I love it when blog readers put me to work like this! I'm still trying to answer Susan's question as to whether or not Proximity Hotel is the "greenest" in the world!

Thank you for your recent visit and comment on my skywatch post.

This artwork was done by the previous owner (silent partner?) Jim King. You should also look at the walk-in keg cooler that came from the old seafood restaurant off Wendover that had a working lighthouse.


Yep - Pepsi and Cola - we covered it all :) I'm a Coke's fan - as long as it is 0 calories or less, but my husband would drink the full loaded cola or none at all :)
I like murals on walls! So refreshing!

Thanks Mrs. GDP for the history on both Pepsi, and that other beverage. Have to stand by our NC home grown products!!

Great photo, great ad.


Great work with this blog!

I love this spot and used it on a recent photoshoot:
