Coca-Cola signs, Aruba

Aruba features great Coca-Cola signage, from old-time painted walls to newer laminates like this one at a local Chinese restaurant.

I’ve been out taking more pictures of all kinds of cultural icons here in Aruba. Some of them are disappearing and new ones are cropping up. It’s good to have a record of the change so we know where we came from, even if we don’t know where we’re going.

Still the real thing…

Old Coca-Cola signs are everywhere, including this example from Aruba. It was painted on the side of a building near the old Atlantic Hotel and Villa site.

It’s a little worse for the wear, but still the real thing. Soon there will be 150 residences built in the open area behind this sign. That’s why photos are important, to document what was and what’s to come. Enjoy your Coca-Cola ice-cold.
