Why purchase this Dr. Pepper New York World's Fair Sign?

The New York World's Fair of 1964/1965 was held in Flushing Meadows, Queens, New York. Among the vast amount of pavilions, restaurants and exhibits in the 646 acre fair, eighty of the world's nations were represented, as well as twenty-four U.S. states. For its more than 51 million visitors, the fair served as a showcase for American culture, technology and consumer products. Manufacturers of an enormous range of goods, such as automobiles, pens, computers and soft drinks, utilized the fair as an opportunity to raise awareness of their products through colorful advertisements.

Dr. Pepper at the New York World's Fair

In 1885, a pharmacist by the name of Charles Alderton, who worked at a drugstore in Waco, Texas, created the carbonated soft drink known as Dr. Pepper. Dr. Pepper is the oldest American soft drink brand, preceding the introduction of Coca-Cola by only one year. This paper sign, crafted by the Stout Sign Company of St. Louis, Missouri, was an advertisement issued for Dr. Pepper in conjunction with the New York World's Fair.
