was about 1946 when a painting crew for a central Kentucky
Coca-Cola Bottling Company stopped to unload their gear.
Within hours, the simple and unassuming barn was marked
with a uniqueness that set it apart from other local
landmarks. It now proudly carried the name of the most
familiar drink in America --- Coca-Cola.
Interstate Highway nearby has diverted most sightseers
from old Highway 31W near Park City, Kentucky. I first
photographed the barn in 1980, but upon return 15 years
later, could find no evidence of the sign or the barn.
the old barn sign possesses a nostalgic and artistic
beauty, the rarity of the subject was reason enough
to add COCA-COLA COUNTY to my Old Road Series
of America paintings.
