In the days of the soda fountain, drinks were made by adding flavored syrup to carbonated water. That syrup would arrive in gallon cans just like this one! As you can see, the paper wrap around this can states “Do not reuse, destroy when empty.” Well, someone missed the memo, and we’re all the more thankful for it! It’s incredible to see how well this can has been preserved, especially considered the label surrounding it is paper. Manufactured in Wilmington, Delaware, this can actually lists the ingredients of the Coca-Cola syrup of the day, specifically noting “cocaine removed.” But it’s interesting to note how the Coke fountains of the day functioned much the same as the freestyle soda machines do today in restaurants—flavored syrup added to soda water. When you find these cans today, there’s almost always a piece of the label that’s torn or affected by water damage. This can is in extraordinary condition and makes a beautiful addition to any Coca-Cola collection. Back in the 1930s, one ounce of syrup would be added to five ounces of soda water to create a sixounce serving. If our math is correct, that means this single can produced 128 servings of delicious Coca-Cola for thirsty patrons during the Great Depression!
