Coke Machine …

There are several reasons for posting this image of an old Coke machine … the first and main reason is the ten cents above the coin slot.  I can not remember a Coke ever being ten cents, I believe I can remember it being a quarter, but I am not positive on that.  The next is the style of the Coke machine itself.  I can barely remember lifting a slot like the one above to get a drink out.  I remember the drink box better where you lift up the top and then slide your bottle to the end to work your drink out.  The kids today reallt have it rough when they have to put a couple of bills in to get their drink out and don’t even think about getting a Coke out of a machine in Orlando / DisneyWorld!  Thanks for looking and please check back … Frank

  1. I was a Navy Brat. When I was a kid, Cokes were a nickel each. In 1956, my Dad was transferred to 2 years duty in the Philippines. When we returned to USA, Cokes were 6cents. Machines were fitted to accept a nickel and a penny. I could not believe it!

    • Thanks for the comment … I cannot go back to a nickel and penny price, a quarter was the price I remembered. It is hard for me to pay several dollars for a bottle of sugared water, I doubt that I drink a bottle a month. That was interesting about them adding a penny to the price and adjusting the machines. I have no idea why I would have a negative of a Coke machine, but I just thought that it was an interesting photo. Thanks for writing and please check back … Frank
