Coca Cola Bottling Plant Building, 1334 South Central Avenue, Los Angeles, circa late 1930sWhen Coca-Cola decided to build a bottling plant at 1334 South Central Ave, Los Angeles in 1939, Architect, Robert V. Derrah (who also he designed the Crossroads of the World mall on Sunset) went with a then-popular Streamline Moderne style in the striking appearance of a ship, complete with portholes, catwalk and a bridge. The building was declared a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument in 1975 and still looks exactly the same to this day. (And how often can we say that in LA?)

    I worked at Arrowhead Water that was owned by Coca Cola. We used to go to this plant for meetings. They had a big cooler filled with their soda products which we could take any time. When I left Arrowhead the president of Coca Cola got me a job with Aetna, their liability carrier, where I worked for 20 years. The plant was in the shape of a battle ship and I think that was due to the founder being a navy man. I could be wrong about this.
