Coke Sign 


Coke Sign 

In 2002 we were remodeling the Old Corner.  We discovered that under the dirty drywall was the beautiful barn wood you see today.  We decided to remove all of the drywall. In the process we discovered a Coke sign sandwiched between the drywall and the barn wood.  An expert came in and estimated the value of the sign to be $4,000. 

In September of 2006 one of our customers, Dennis came in and said that his boss thought he knew the woman who posed for the sign.  We took a picture of the sign, Dennis took it to his boss, and the boss took it to the woman in Danville.  She (Nina) concurred that she had posed for the sign.  We arranged to meet with her and have her put her signature on the sign.

 The pictures below were taken in Ninaís home in Danville.  We wanted to invite someone from Coca-Cola and the local newspaper but Nina said that she didnít want any publicity.  Nina posed for many other advertisements and was the Chesterfield Girl many years ago.  She said that she posed for this sign in the 1940ís
