    I have an original poster on card board, which was normally displayed at shops selling coke, with a lady with dark hair, in a circle, holding a bottle of coke. The wording So Refreshing is at the top of the poster and in the bottom is Drink Coca Cola. Do you know from which year – my quess is prior to 1960

    I am sorry to inform you of this, but you have some things wrong.. The first picture is NOT in 1889. That is of Lillian Norton Nordica who did not work for Coca-Cola until 1903. She was their second famous model. This is from a Coca-Cola advertisement about 1905. Then down the page a bit you have it listed at 1900 which is not correct either. That is Hilda Clark the first model Coca Cola used on their advertisement tins. This painting is likely about 1895. She quit when she married a millionaire in 1903. So you might want to change those around. Hilda did indeed start working for C-C in 1889 but that is not when, according to most, say this painting was done The one with the green outfit and the hat with the white fluffy feathers on it..The first picture was taken in 1903 of Lillian Norton Nordica but was not used as a tin until 1905.I have the original photo this was taken from too. You may or may not know this but those are very famous Coca Cola ladies that you would want to get correct in order to make your site more trust worthy. Lillian died ultimately as a result of a shipwreck in 1914. It took her awhile but she never recovered from it.

      “…Lillian died ultimately as a result of a shipwreck in 1914. It took her awhile but she never recovered from it….”

      How does someone recover from dying?

    • Sarah

      I bet she did not recover from it “It took her awhile but she never recovered from it”. Thanks for the information wondering how valid your info is.

    great old ones, but it’s missing some of new ones like coke side of life
