Today's picture was taken in 1910, and shows the American Soda Fountain in Washington DC.
I enjoyed the comments yesterday describing a few remaining soda fountains in the US. In Dublin, Texas, there is the oldest Dr. Pepper bottler in the country. They still use the ORIGINAL formula using Pure Cain Sugar instead of corn syrup, and they have an old fashioned soda fountain. I don't drink much soda pop, but let me tell you that those they serve at the Dublin soda fountain are really something great. I think the sodas made at a fountain have a stronger "bite" from the carbonation, and canned sodas can not compare. Also, I think that the sodas made with real sugar have a much better flavor than the corn syrup ones typically canned today.
