Every week, Traces of Texas sends us a vintage photo to share for Throwback Thursday.

Traces of Texas reader Courtney Kennedy kindly sent in this circa-1915 photo of his grandfather delivering Coca-Cola in the area around Sabinal in South Texas. It doesn’t look like a smooth ride—you might want to let those bottles set a spell before trying to open one!
