RC Cola – love it or hate it – is almost as old as the Egyptian pyramids.  (You can read the full history here).  I have a few items in my collection that represent several decades of this product.  The bottle, copyright 1936, is emblazoned with a jazzy red and yellow logo that for some reason depicts four pyramids.  A teenage Shirley Temple promotes RC from an advertising fan, c. 1944 – this may be the same time frame for the coupon.  Paramount star Wanda Hendrix assures us that RC is ‘best by taste-test’ on a calendar from 1950.  And last is a photograph of RC being bottled at the factory – I included a detail shot of the bottles.  Enjoy!
