The sculpture visible behind yesterday's sign is appropriately titled "Coca-Cola" and was done by Canadian artist Walter Yarwood in 1964. The sculpture stands 5 M high and consists of intersecting bronze silhouettes mounted on a dome which has the words 'Coca-Cola', 'ice-cold', and 'drink' spelled out in various languages and alphabets on the band around its circumference. Coke is moving from this building and there is an ongoing debate as to whether the sculpture belongs to Coca-Cola or to the community since it has become quite a landmark in the area.
More on the building tomorrow. That is the bottling plant in the background today.
