This Dr Pepper bottling plant was built in 1949. The 10-2-4 clock sign still remains. The building most recently housed Big F Insecticides but it appears to be vacant now.

former Coca-Cola bottling plant
Memphis, TN
Coca-Cola moved into this building in 1980. I assume there was another business in this building before that. The building appears to be from the 1950s. In 2019, it was announced that the company was moving production to West Memphis, AR. By 2022, the sign was gone. [map]



former Coca-Cola bottling plant
Springfield, TN
This Coca-Cola bottling plant now houses Christmas Done Bright which produces Christmas ornaments and lights. This building is probably from the 1930s or 1940s. It must have had more detail originally but at least the entry was preserved. [map]
