Coca-Cola Relieves Fatigue In Anderson

             Back in November 2012 Edgeville Buzz broke the news of an old Coca-Cola sign being unearthed after an old auto garage was knocked down. Someone there posted the black and white photo in the Edgeville Buzz discussion of this sign. People really like that name Andersonville, which is a mouthful to say, the Trib was on to something when they shortened it to just plain old Anderson. Of course to be completely correct the sign is in Edgewater, the true name of the neighborhood. Wish there wasn't that ugly green fencing in the side lot precluding the opportunity for a nice photo like the one from the old days. A bigger more complete picture if you continue reading. Also the brand new porch is a out of place with the old sign, too bad it isn't a darker more vintage shade.

Either visit Edgeville Buzz to see the old photo of this advertisement or continue reading

yes vintage is always a better look. the sign should be a historic marker and protected.

Yes it should be A.P.

Maybe just put a see-through building in there?

Any construction that would block the view or degrade the historic character should be prevented. Is this in the Lakefront Protection Zone? Maybe it can be rezoned as a heritage site.

It's a cool old sign. It should be latex/silicone coated so when the piece of crap building that gets built and torn down a future generation can see it.

Fat chance getting it protected.
