Series 2 Card - 1931
This card features original artwork by Norman Rockwell which was created for The Coca Cola Company in 1931. Between 1928 and 1935, Rockwell created six scenes for "Coca-Cola" advertisments featuring his well-know slice-of-life style.

1939 - Spanish Serving Tray
This card front features a Spanish serving tray from 1939. This young lady enjoys a "Coca-Cola" while relaxing by the pool. In the early years, the "Coca-Cola" bottler in Barcelona, Spain has discovered that his best sales outlet for the product was the bullfight arena. He displayed large "Coca-Cola" advertisments around the arena to promote sales in that city.

1957 - The Drive-In
The advertisment on this card is titled "Happy Pause for the Youth of all Ages" and reflects a popular scene in the 1950s. The drive-in restuarant was a favourite meeting place for the young and young at heart. Drive-in movies also became very popular in the '50s. Coca-Cola was part of it all.

Hi Sunshine, interesting hobby/blog, I found yours through Blogexplosin.com.
I am surprised that you didn't use the coca-cola template for your blog.
Here it is;

You can change the colour of the text too, if you play around with the html
