Coca-Cola Company, "Advertising Price List: Section 3 Inside Point of Sale" binder

Accession: 2023-213

The Coca-Cola Company is a multinational corporation in the beverage industry, best known for its soft drink Coca-Cola, which was formulated in 1886 by Dr. John Stith Pemberton (1831-1888) as a medicinal syrup for headaches. The company has since evolved to produce a wide variety of beverages and associated products. This small collection consists of a sales catalog and price list showing retailers' options for Coca-Cola point-of-sale advertisements that would encourage customers to purchase additional items before exiting the store, stored in a binder. The binder was updated periodically between 1958 and 1960.

Dates: 1957-1960

Scope and Contents:

This series contains catalogs, price lists, brochures, photographs, correspondence, samples, and various promotional materials related to decorative furnishings received by William Pahlmann Associates between 1946 and 1976. These files are arranged by type of furnishing or location within the home, featuring such categories as lighting, kitchens, and plumbing. It appears that most of these materials were requested by William Pahlmann Associates, but it also appears that some of the information was sent to the firm without solicitation. The catalogs and associated price lists highlight the difference between the wholesale and retail market for furnishings. Interior design firms like William Pahlmann Associates benefited from bulk rates on furnishings that the average consumer could not obtain.

Dates: 1940-1976; Majority of material found within 1960-1976
