The Story of Coca Cola


The other day, a couple I had met at the DICOTA Convention in Washington, D.C. showed up in Atlanta all the way from the state of Virginia, and Chesapeake in particular. They just wanted a taste of Atlanta. Being a family, the night life was not in their agenda. Therefore we had to do the day stuffs around the city.
We left the house and drove into downtown Atlanta. In downtown, we decided to buy a city pass and just do the triangle (3) attractions surrounding Centennial Park (Georgia Aquarium, World of Coca Cola and the CNN headquarters) where the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games was held.

We started with the World of Coca Cola. Here is the story of Coca Cola in pictures.

J.S.Pemberton
J.S.Pemberton is the Atlanta pharmacist who created and introduced Coca Cola in May 8th, 1886. The name Coca Cola was actually suggested to him by his secretary.
