Wooden Coca Cola Bottle Box with Lid (2018-07-12 16-30-16a)
The photo was taken at Ken’s Diner and Grill, 3353 Dempster Street, Skokie, Illinois.
I’ve never seen one like this before. I’ve seen old wooden trays with the slotted boards but not one that was an enclosed box. Since the handle is not centered, I assume this was not designed for transporting the bottles. It may just have been made from old Coke cases.
I used a Nikon Coolpix P7700 camera to take the photo and ACDSEe Ultimate 2018 to edit it. I cropped it a bit to get rid of some distractions and then used the dehaze, SmartErase and clone to get rid of some reflections. Then I adjusted the lighting, boosted the contrast, vibrance and clarity and sharpened it a bit.

I remember those days where I would buy soft drinks in bottles before the plastic bottles became common inside of supermarkets.
We can still get some in bottles here but it’s mainly the fancy ones or ones imported from Mexico.
I remember the bottled drinks that my relatives bought when the Coca Cola delivery truck would stop in the former Canal Zone area called La Boca (The Mouth) on a monthly basis when I was living in Panama.
You are probably right. Someone did a cool job of using boards from original cases to put this box together. Nice shot for making people smile. Good old Coca-Cola. It’s not goof for us, but it is fun. :- )
Well done! Nice post!!!
Thank you, Georgi. I appreciate it.
That is a cool find Gary. Reminds me of something form the show American Pickers.
The diner that we were at had a lot of stuff like this. I was talking with one of the people who worked there and recommended that she check out that show. She had never heard of it.
