At 8 a.m. on Monday, October 15, Coca-Cola Bottling Co. of Winona MN will open its doors and the sale of the final run of the “little Cokes” will start. These “Last Run” Cokes with red and white hang tags will make wonderful holiday gifts for the Coke lovers you know and love. The $20 price is tax deductible and will go towards resurfacing the Lake Winona Bike and Pedestrian Path.
We should have a mail in order form posted here by Monday for those of you who can’t make the trip to 102 Franklin St. in Winona, MN.
This last run is all the heavy vintage embossed circulated bottles (not color-applied), pre-1960, with the various bottling plants from around the USA embossed on their heels. Please see previous blog page for example photos.
Here are a few more photos from Tuesday’s final production run.
