This year is the 125th Anniversary of Coca-Cola. I came across this early letter today in the Archives that literally gave a picture of the Company's operations at an earlier point. It was written from the Coca-Cola office in Toronto and is dated September 12, 1909. What I particularly like is the letterhead, which contains a picture of the various Company offices, from left to right: Chicago, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Dallas, Los Angeles, Havana and Toronto. The letter itself describes the Coca-Cola presence at the Canadian National Exhibition that year: "Every street, corner, booth and lunch stand had as many Coca-Cola signs as they could place. The special work work created a remark that "everywhere you go you see Coca-Cola."" I guess that's the type of dedication that keeps us 125 years young.
