Coolest Coca-Cola bottle ever.

A reader of my column brought by the neatest gift: a Kerrville Coca-Cola bottle.  For you youngsters, "Cokes" used to come in returnable 6.5 oz glass bottles.  This size bottle was called a "pony."  On the bottom of the bottle a place was always stamped.  We used to play a game to see who had the bottle from the farthest place.  In all my years of drinking Coca-Cola, I never saw a Kerrville bottle.  Until now.

  1. I first encountered these bottles during my childhood when visiting relatives in Williamston, NC.

    We'd grab an icy one from a refrigerator on the back porch and then sit on the wrap-around front porch in rocking chairs, drinking and chatting with ancient great-aunts who were passionate about ACC basketball.
