Another Good Read

Over the weekend I went to a few Antique Stores in North Georgia and Tennessee. I found a few good bottles, but the most interesting thing I found was a book ‘How About a Coke?’ by Frank Barron, printed in 2001.  The Barron family was a long time Coca-Cola bottler in Rome, Georgia as well as being involved in several other bottling plants around Georgia.  This is a personal look into bottling, the early years up to when they sold the business (and why they sold the business).  It has some very interesting details of bottling and puts a personal spin on it. I had never heard of this book before, but I did look it up on the internet today and saw two copies available on Amazon.   I think it is a book worth reading if you want to learn more about the bottling side of the business or just for some good detailed information on this North Georgia bottler.

    […] the Coca-Cola Bottling Company in Rome around 1901. (I wrote about Frank’s book a few years ago: https://cocacolabottleman.wordpress.com/2009/11/09/another-good-read/) He is certainly an interesting man to speak to. I enjoyed talking ‘Coca-Cola’ with him […]

      Is this the bottle that looks like it has a ‘Bow Tie’ embossed on the shoulder? The bow tie version is worth around $40 to $50. Glad you enjoy my blog!
