More paper items from my collection. These are called Red Barrel magazines and were distributed to employees of The Coca-Cola Company as an in-house publication.
These were first produced in January 1924 and were mailed out every month. In 1951 they went out bi-monthly and then quarterly until the final issue in 1953.
I think I own over 100 issues. These are still fairly common and easy to obtain. The earlier ones and anniversary issues are harder to find as well as more valuable.
These usually consist of 30-40 pages and are filled with interesting articles and photos related to The Coca-Cola Company and its employees. These are also a great reference for dating and identifying advertising materials of the earlier years.
Most of mine are in mint to near mint condition and I also have a few of the original mailing envelopes, which are very rare to find.
Thanks for viewing my collections and feel free to comment, compliment...more to come...lots more!
BTW, my name is Ray...and I'm back from "retirement," so to speak.
