Released in 1880, this is the very first publicly sold bottle of Coca-Cola. It contained around 3.5 grams of cocaine.

I found this old Photo in Dads photos

Enjoy the old days history.

    1. Good one, loved Coke. Australia had this to. My Father was a Commisioner of Police he used to say it wasn’t banned here for years until they united deaths were rising. I found this in his photo collection some time ago. I’m so happy you shared this. Maybe there will still be folk world wide know the story 😁

        1. Not many do. COKE CHANGED THE RECIPE GRADUALLY AS FOLK WERE TOTALLY ADDICTED BY THE COMPANY. COKE DID CONFORM TO THE LAW OF THE TIME. Today it still the Giant Company that took the fall and just look how the share market have risen. We salivate the original owner for taking advice and grow.
