On Graphic Arts Road by Emporia High School this can be seen by all. This is an old silo that someone has painted to look like a giant Coca-Cola can.

The "Classic" brand labeling was hastily created after the new Coke formula marketing disaster of 1985. The labeling distinction was finally retired in 2009, so this silo may become a historic landmark of sorts.

This silo advertisement for a refreshing Coca Cola from Spartan's can be seen in Emporia, Kansas just northeast of the KTA turnpike entrance. There used to also be a Coor's beer Silo but it was razed to make room for a highway project.
