We know little about this picture that shows delivery vehicles painted with signage including Parham's Heating-Appliances. Also "Let Bob Do Your Job."

Two trucks loaded with cases of soda bottles are labeled with Parham's Dist. Co. and also "Drink Royal Crown Cola." (G.D. Fronabarger photo)

Bottles Needed

The return of several thousand bottles is essential if Cape Girardeau is to avoid a shortage of beverages, R.C. Parham, manager of the local Ne-Hi Bottling Co. reported today. Parham pointed out that the return of empty bottles and cartons to dealers would save valuable manufacturing manpower and materials. All stores handling beverages or milk make refunds on the returned bottles.
