    Love Orange Crush. Spending the summers in South Georgia I would drink Orange Crush, Nehi and RC Cola. Orange Crush came in a brown opaque bottle. Once I had one that wasn’t cold so my aunt put some ice in a glass and poured it in the glass. Surprise, the liquid was light chartreuse bordering on yellow. It still tasted good even though I thought it would be orange.

  2. I don’t like it at all. I photographed the unrestored version a few years back on a chilly, foggy morning on our way from Thomasville to Tallahassee.

    I dont know if there was much of the original showing, however the restoration is much too intense and not that well done. Restorations should be minimally applied just enough to bring out the existing image. I am sure the original craftsmanship was much better.
