Threadneedle Alley?

I was curious about the Coka-Cola ad painted on the brick wall outside Rockfish at 38 State Street, in the alley.

Does anyone know what it says or know where I could find an old photo of it?

It is very faded, but above the Coke sign is something like “Soup Bowl”? I’m just very curious.

  1. When I was a child in the early ’70s most of the sign was readable. I don’t remember what the top words used to say but the bottom letters (along the cobblestones) used to say “RELIEVES FATIGUE.”

  2. There is a very good photo hanging in exhibit at The Provident Bank on Story Ave right now and will be there until the end of September.
    I cannot read the top line, but the middle reads.

    Sugar Bowl
    Pure Ice Cream

    Then the coke sign as noted above with a very prominent ‘Relieves Fatigue’

  3. The photo referred to from the bank can be found at 17 State street (formally Fowles) on the East wall headed out back.
