These are a series of brochures for Pelco chest coolers made in the 1950s. They are to promote their electric chest coolers as low-price, yet high quality. These ads are targeted at soft drink bottlers in the hope they will buy these coolers for placement in stores and other establishments in order to sell their bottled soda. One brochure shows a series of different colored coolers with embossing from different soft drink manufacturers.
By the time these brochures were distributed in the 1950s, it states that the manufacturer of Pelco coolers already had 50 years of manufacturing experience. They must have gone out of business some time ago, as there isn’t much information available on them today.
