Brick Deli owners plan to restore Coca-Cola sign
Owners of a downtown Decatur deli and bar plan to restore a faded Coca-Cola sign painted possibly 70 years ago.
The Brick Deli burned last year, but the owners plan to
re-open soon at 112 E. Moulton St. They received permission Tuesday from the city Board of Zoning and Adjustment to restore the sign.
Frank Troup, of Decatur Coca-Cola Bottling Co., and Carlton McMasters Jr., of J&M Signs, told committee members the sign was originally painted in the late 1940s or early 1950s.
City Councilman Ray Metzger said the restoration would complement the Decatur Art Council's plan to paint removable murals in the downtown historic district.
