As indicated in the comments section of the last post, here are some Coca Cola girls that have been identified as the work of Haddon Sundblom, the painter of the iconic Coke Santa scenes.

Refreshing after all these years.

Thanks so much for posting these! I've come to be a big fan of Sundblom... almost as much as I am of Sargent! Two very different painters... but there's a lot of pleasure to be had from the brushwork of both men.

I know what you're saying about the one picture, but strangely enough, that's how waitresses in diners used to dress.
