Blast From the Past: Soda Shops

Posted on May 19th in vintage, vintage lifestyle. No Comments

Once upon a time, there was a soda shop in almost every city in the United States – it was a place where people stopped in for coffee, grabbed a bite to eat, and where teenagers socialized after school while drinking Coca-Cola and milkshakes.
