Here in the northern hemisphere, the days are getting brisker and the leaves are changing colours. So we've put together a selection of Autumn imagery from the Coca-Cola archives. Sit back, relax, crack open a can and consume some seasonal Coke history.

"A Great Drink to Eat With!" declares this 1937 ad, featuring an autumn barbecue.

This 1938 painting was created by artist Haddon Sundblom. If that name sounds familiar to you, you're probably well-versed in your Coke lore: Sundblom is perhaps most famous as the creator of the Coca-Cola Santa Claus.

This 1948 advertisement features Sprite Boy, a character who interestingly enough existed two decades before the introduction of the beverage Sprite.

This 1951 ad depicts a couple enjoying an outdoor picnic. We believe in simple moments of happiness like this - so much so that we recently transformed a drab city square in Lithuania into a pop-up park full of picnic baskets, kites, frisbees and music.

This illustration of a girl and her dog comes from a 1956 Japanese calendar, but the sentiment is universal.
