Coke Plant 4_RTP_5x5_7 June 15 _SFW

I have had this image sitting around for years and was surprised that I had not posted it yet.  I went back through 390 something posts and could not find where I had put it up, so I decided to post it.  The Hygeia Bottling Company had the franchise to produce and bottle Coca-Cola in Pensacola Florida when Coca-Cola first came out. I obviously did not take this photo or did my father … someone had brought me a photo to copy and I just saved me a negative.  That was over thirty years ago and so I can not remember who, why or what for, but it must have impressed to save a negative.  I have no clue where this is in Pensacola or the year the photograph was taken.  Maybe if someone could tell the make and model of the car on the right hand side of the image, we could establish a year for the photograph.  I wonder if this is the train tracks that run parallel to Wright Street or the tracks out on Border Street in Brownsville.  One more thing, I have started using my Instagram account and posting all different examples of my photography and these photographs from this site.  Some images have not been posted on either blog yet, so it is just not repackaged or redesigned images for Instagram.  I am just trying to find new ways to attract viewers to my blogs and create new interest in my photography.  I have enjoyed posting on Instagram since you get instant responses and there are a lot of new people that I can be exposed to that I otherwise would not.  I still do not have a Facebook site for my photography and somewhere I am going to get around to putting one up.  I really like my blogs and the people that I have reached through them and I have no plan of slowing down, even though that I have had them for years.  It seems that people are so fickle now days and what is popular today will not be two or three years from now.  Thanks again for looking and if anyone knows anything about this image, please let us hear from you.  Also, if anyone has seen this image before, let me know.  Please check back … Frank

Hygeia Bottling Works in Pensacola …

This was the first Coca-Cola Bottling plant in Pensacola … I posted a view from the road earlier, but I ran across this side view and thought that I would through it up here.  I do not know where this was located, but it is next to some train tracks.  They would be to the left or the back of this building if they were in view.  I think I have a view showing the tracks somewhere, so I will look and see what I can find.  Thanks for looking and as usual, all posts are welcomed …
