SANTA CLAUS AND COCA COLA

From 1933 to 1964, the makers of Coca Cola placed advertisements on the back covers of National Geographic Magazine.   Every December, the ad would feature a colorful Santa Claus cover.  The Coca Cola company hired illustrator Haddon Sundblom to develop images using the real Santa Claus, the one who lives at the North Pole. These original oil paintings considered important works of art in their own right, are among the most popular advertising images of the Coca Cola company.

Presented here are the collection of the Dublin-Laurens County Historical Society.
