Once again, it is time to test your skill in developing a caption for this photograph taken in the late 1920s.As you can see, the young man in the foreground is holding a standard 6.5 oz. bottle of Coca-Cola in one hand and a somewhat larger bottle of Coke in the other.
King sized packaging for consumers did not begin until 1955, but in the late 1920s, bottlers could purchase a glass bottle 20 inches in height for use in retail displays. The bottles cost 59 cents each. Today, collectors would pay upwards of $300 for one of those bottles.
The challenge before you is to create an amusing caption for the photograph by 5pm on March 25. A winner will be announced on March 26. Let the submissions begin.
