Coca-Cola bottling plant
Wooster, OH
This Coca-Cola bottling plant is now used by the Salvation Army. This building design is the same or very similar to the one in Shelbyville, IN. For more, see this website. [map]

Coca-Cola bottling plant
Zanesville, OH
This Coca-Cola bottling plant was built in 1937. These colored tiles were original to the building. Zanesville was known as the "Clay City" and "Pottery Capital of the World". So, this tile panel seems to be a unique alternative to Coca-Cola's standard use of terra cotta. This building was the third Coca-Cola plant in town. It served as a production and distribution facility until 1986. The building is now used as a warehouse by Coca-Cola. [map]
