This is a wonderful picture. With the lamps over the billboard space, I can almost see a beautiful painted Pepsi ad being lit up and beckoning to stop in for a carbonated treat. The inset brick for the board and beveled entry are details from long ago, the brick facade stunning in sepia...

Wow that´s a picture I love! Really suitable in sepia.

Wow! Great picture! You can't really tell if it's an old picture or a new one because the building has such a old feel.

I like Pepsi better than Coke, Mojo! And I really love that dark sepia tone... :)

The brickwork and the faded Pepsi sign are perfect. I remember the old pepsi bottles, the 12 oz. glass bottles with 2 cent deposit. Ah yes, a cold bottle of Pepsi and a pack of Tasycake chocolate cupcakes -- a nutritious snack for sure.

Sepia works really well with this old brick building and the classically drawn Pepsi sign.

The photo evokes a simpler time and place.

OMFG. The art gallery called. It wants its showpiece back.

Timeless! And so North Carolina. Isn't there a store just like this on a corner in almost every small town in our state? Yeah, we were all weaned on Pepsi.
