It’s as American as Apple Pie, and was/is a huge product in Australia for many years. Who didn’t go to the Milk Bar and buy a packet of Twisties and a can or bottle of coke?
In my younger days the markets had some great old magazines for sale pretty cheap and I really liked the advertising in them… that’s such a co-inkydink, as now I’m a graphic artist who creates adverts.
I bought a lot of these magazines and kept them for a while, then after a few years went through them, and if there was only a few good pages, or they were American or British mags, I kept the better pages and tossed the rest. I kept all the Australian Women’s Weekly and other Australian mags whole, I would certainly cringe now if I had of tossed them!
Here photographed below is a collection of Coke ( Coca Cola) adverts that I took from LIFE magazines which were pretty much American from memory, but these full page ads I kept.
At the top of some of them they mention that Coca Cola is sold licensed in Australia, so not sure why that was on them, maybe there was a few made in Oz, or just made for the Australian market. A couple of pages I didn’t tear out that well (peter slaps himself) but still they are still all pretty much there, just some white bleed around the advert is torn.
