Helpful Hints from Days of Yore

As some of you may know, we just finished installing our latest temporary exhibit Birth of a Brand. Birth of a Brand is all about the early years of Dr Pepper and the soft drink industry. Almost all of the objects on display are original to the time period (1885 - 1925) and there is A LOT to see!

One of the objects on display is a book entitled A Gold Mine in Soda: MacMahon's Latest Recipes and American Soda Water Dispenser's Guide. This snarky volume contains many quotes worthy of an "ooh!" and an "ahh!" but the following pages stood out as the most appropriate to display and share with all of you. Pay particular attention to the section entitled "How to Attend a Soda Fountain" :)

Sage advice from a wise man, and oh so applicable today! We invite you to come to our soda fountain and experience a hand made Dr Pepper, and while you are here be sure to check out Birth of a Brand!
