The Vendo Decapper in Production

September 28th, 2009 · 3 Comments

We have already written a blog on the very rare Vendo Decapper soda machine, but I came across this photo and wanted to post it. It shows a production line full of Decapper soda machines. This is a rare photo, given that very few of these machines were manufactured and very few survived.

Here is a brochure for a Dr. Pepper Guiberson Double-Quick Vendor, Model GCD-144. The machine has an interesting design. It’s clean and simple—almost clinical, with just a small Dr. Pepper script sign and painted the standard Dr. Pepper green.

Squirt Soda Advertising Scale

September 11th, 2009 · 2 Comments

This is a brochure for a Squirt advertising scale from the 1940s. The scale was manufactured by Hamilton Scales and would have made for great point-of-purchase advertising. In addition, the storeowner displaying one of these would be making profits from the coin-operated scale.
