Coke was being served in Canada as far back as 1897, and today I had a Coke in Canada in an advanced celebration of the brand's birthday with employees at the beautiful new office in Toronto. We set up a Coca-Cola Canada exhibit, which includes one of the syrup barrel labels pictured here. Although it is still hard to believe, I learned that in 1921, Winnipeg actually sold more cases of Coca-Cola than Atlanta and Birmingham combined. It is also interesting that Montreal sold nearly the same amount of Coke as New Orleans did in 1930. I guess it's true that "Thirst Knows No Season" (or temperature limits).
