The Final Bottling
The old Coca Cola Bottling Plant on Stockton Blvd is closing down. The Urban Landscape Plein Aire Painters were out yesterday and we chose the structure as our subject. It was a beautiful morning for painting and there were nice shadows at the time. We set up across the street in a shady park that was perfect.
I know the area very well as I traveled by it daily on my way to work. I once brought my 7 y/o son and we had a tour of the place. It was impressive with all of the bottling equipment going. Inside, there is very little space that isn't occupied by the stainless steel tanks and tracks.
I'm unsure of what will happen to this landmark but it will be missed.
