1956 ZENITH ROYAL 500 & COCA COLA

"Share the Fun... when you're with someone you like its fun to enjoy a coke together..." Or even a Zenith Royal 500...

This great old Coca Cola ad came from a Senior Scholastic magazine circa 1956. It is significant to think that coke chose to place a Zenith Royal 500 so prominently in this national ad. Coke has always been a fashion conscious drink and in the past always aligned itself with what is 'hot right now' in order to maximize exposure and profits. What a coup for Zenith! It shows just how popular transistor radios were becoming with young people in the mid 1950's.
