Soda Fountains

Soda fountains—the machine to create carbonated drinks—first became popular in America in the mid-20th century. These machines became synonymous with drugstore counters and ice cream parlors, and inspired a plethora of new recipes like egg creams, ice cream floats, and malts. The machine quickly lent its name to the gathering places where such treats could be enjoyed. 

Though many have closed down, these old-fashioned soda fountains are still up and running, delivering a blast from the past and a dreamsicle on the side.
