Coke Was Here
This use to be Coca Cola Company years ago in Marietta.
I remember walking with my daddy up the Roswell Street Hill that the Coke building was almost at the top of pulling my wagon. Wait – now, that I am remembering details – daddy did the walking and I did the riding, in the wagon.
He would purchase a case of Cokes there. I wouldn’t think they would have any provisions for walk-in customers… but maybe it was a “who you know” thing.
Then, he would pull the wagon loaded with a wooden case of Cokes back and I had to walk… all the way back to the Clay Homes, about three blocks (downhill). Life was hell back then.
The foreground of the picture is the Marietta National Cemetery. I think I took this picture about 4 or 5 years ago. I hate to say it, but I haven’t even noticed if the building is still there. I know they have been building upscale townhouses all around it and behind it… if it is still there, it is just a matter of time until the bulldozer arrives.
