You have probably heard that the Expo 2010 in Shanghai is opening tomorrow. In honor of the opening, I'd like to spotlight an interesting China related poster on display at the World of Coke. This 1936 poster features a fashionable woman holding a glass of Coke, right under a Chinese Coca-Cola logo. The interesting thing about this piece is that while it clearly appears to be a piece of foreign advertising, it was actually produced for use in American Chinatowns. For this reason, it is often referred to in collectors' circles as "Chinatown." This can be found in the Milestones of Refreshment case in the section highlighting fashion.
