Coke Factory

I took a little time off during my work trip to visit the Coke Factory. So much memorabilia - old bottles, signs, vending machines, etc. Definitely worth a few hours of your time if you're in the Atlanta area. The coolest part was the store. I wanted everything! Anyways, here's a picture of the "soda jerk". Way back in the old days when you order a Coke, the person behind the counter will squirt Coke syrup and add carbonated soda water. The soda water comes in at a high pressure that you see a jerky motion when he opens the valve hence "jerk".
