Coke machine

Coke machine
Until the 1950s Coke was the drink of choice in America. No country store in Eastern North Carolina was complete without the requisite Coke Machine or cooler. The one featured here was very popular during its time. This machine was sought after because of its compact size and also because it was a “dry box”. Despite its small size this machine could hold up to 120 bottles. Embossed on all four sides with the phrase “Drink Coca-Cola”, it is made of galvanized steel and is run by electricity. The Westinghouse Company produced this machine from the late 1940s to late 1950s.
