Joe Biedenharn was the first person to Bottle Coca Cola, previously it had the be pulled and mixed by a person, i.e. the soda jerk. If you can imagine going to the drug store, getting a cup of carbonated water with flavored syrup in it. In it’s time, that was the coveted job for folks to work towards. That was displaced by the introduction of bottled soda.
Biedenharn’s fame grew and business flourished. However his daughter, Emy-Lou, was a renowned singer and built a magnificent garden in back of their house, including the statues above. And you can get a bottle of coke, with real sugar for a nickel.
