Another Painted Cooling Tower at Johannesburg

Painted Cooling Tower at Johannesburg
Johannesburg : South Africa

Just like the cooling towers of Soweto and Bloemfontein, this inactive one was also painted during the World Cup Soccer 2010. This one is situated so close to the Soccer City stadium of Johannesburg.

But this one has a dissimilarity with the other painted towers, it is fully painted as the advertisement of famous brand Coca-Cola, even though rest of the towers were painted to show the cultural phenomena of South Africa. Thus, globalization wins over the local appearances.
Take a look at this cooling tower before painting here.
