Reviews

"It’s a history filled with surprises, controversies, and pure enjoyment. The story is also one that lends itself particularly well to an illustrative representation. … Thankfully Dr. Danna has provided us with this wonderful volume detailing the history of the New Orleans soda fountain both in words and pictures. This gives those that have never experienced an old time soda fountain the chance to see just what it was all about and learn the history of a truly American entity."
