    I think I heard that he really didn't design the Coke bottle, I believe he did some modification on it. I may be wrong.

        Very few. He started as a designer, then became a bon vivant manager.

        Anyone remember the Lark cigarette TV commercial to the tune of The William Tell Overture?

        Ouch!

            IIRC, the slogan for Lark cigs was: "There Is Nothing Like A Lark!"

                The original Coke bottle was designed by the Root Glass Co. of Terre Haute, Indiana. There is a historical marker on the site of their former plant on South Third Street (U.S. 41); as I recall it's in the general area of what is now a Thornton's gas station. I'd have to look up exactly who designed it, as I believe that info is out there, somewhere, but yeah, Loewy modified it into the design we're all familiar with.

                I believe he also "streamlined" the old Gestetner copy machine.

                    I seem to remember he also "streamlined" the David Bradley manure spreader. Seems to me there ought to be a joke in there somewhere.

                        I should add in the streamlined locomotive he did was the S and T Duplexes for the Pennsylvania Railroad. N&W's J class streamlined concoction was, far as I know, from N&W as there later steam locos were built in house(or shops). However the station at Roanoake had Lowey's fingerprints all over it.
                        He also worked over the very stout electric GG-1's......
