This Coca-Cola bottling plant is still operating. My guess is that this building is from the 1950s. [map]

Dublin Bottling Works
Dublin, TX
The Dublin Bottling Works was the first facility to bottle Dr Pepper after it was invented in 1885. Dr Pepper began production here in 1891. After a falling out with Dr Pepper around 2014, the Dublin Dr Pepper Bottling Co. was forced to change its name and association with the company. A neon Dr Pepper sign was removed from the roof. There are still many vintage Dr Pepper items inside. [map]

Dr Pepper bottling plant
Waco, TX
This Dr Pepper bottling plant was designed by Milton Scott and built in 1906 for the Artesian Manufacturing and Bottling Company which produced Dr Pepper. The sign on the building reflects that Dr Pepper was developed in Waco in 1885. This building was used as a bottling plant until the 1960s. The building was renovated and has housed the Dr Pepper Museum since 1989. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The channel letter sign on the building across the courtyard might have had neon originally if it came from somewhere else. It currently has LED rope lighting. It is most likely a modern sign. [map]
