Hey everyone again!!

Thanks for all the previous comments on the victorian sign!! However I have a new puzzle for everyone. I recently acquired a printing plate for a famous Coca Cola ad from around 1937. It looks more intricate than a typical newspaper plate, perhaps a bottlers brochure cover/back cover, does anyone have any ideas?

measures 8x4 3/4, and at the bottom reads:
"Mount Airy Coca-Cola Bottling Company"

Unsolved Mystery

Help us close this case. Add your knowledge below.

    Have you goggled that. I've heard the name Mt. Airy & seem to connect it with the south for some reason. Maybe GA, AL or TN?

    I know that name from somewhere. Senility has it's advantages, - I just don't remember what they are.

    Andy Griffith's home town is Mount Airy, NC, and is cited as being the inspiration for Mayberry in The Andy Griffith Show.
