I love old buildings and signs, so I guess that is why I find these four photos taken of RC Cola plants so interesting. Check out this first one with the giant “Drink Royal Crown Cola” neon billboard.
The second photo is of the Lubbock, Texas RC plant. It features classic 1930’s or 40’s industrial architecture. The building has a brick front and small windowpanes throughout. There’s an overhang over the door with a deco treatment to it. It’s hard to see, but another RC neon sign off is to the right. I wonder how many times Buddy Holly drove by the place?
The third photo shows a building with lots of glass blocks. There is no mistaking what the purpose of the building is by the size of their signs.
The last photo shows the entrance to the Charlotte, NC bottling plant. Again, another great neon sign welcomes all who visit the plant.
All the buildings appear to be small, which makes sense, given Royal Crown’s market share behind Coke, Pepsi, and probably, Dr. Pepper. We have some other great Royal Crown Cola blogs to check out. Just click on the links below.
