People are curious about this old Coca Cola wall sign.
I'm busy printing a set of photographs for a new restaurant that's opening soon in Nashville's Green Hills neighborhood, which includes this image of an old Coca Cola wall sign I found in a grimy downtown alley.
Where was that picture taken?
I get quite a few questions about the location of this photo. People are very interested in seeing the ad in person for themselves. Some ask me sheepishly, as though it's a secret location that I must protect. No, it's not a secret spot—I'm happy to share.
My two photographs were shot in Arcade Alley, just outside the Arcade in downtown Nashville. Below are some screen shots from Google Street View.

The Arcade is a covered shopping center built in 1902, and hosts restaurants, retail shops, and art galleries.
