Description - Soda Shop Salvation by Rae Katherine Eighmey
This book collects over 125 recipes for imaginative drinks, sundae varieties, and luncheonette delights from the 1920s, evoking the time of speakeasies, newfangled devices, and racy automobiles. Titbits of the history of suffragists and flappers, bootleggers and G-men -- whose collective commentary demonstrates that the nation's approach to Prohibition was anything but straightforward -- interweave with the recipes. Excerpts and quotes from publications of the time offer advice for entrepreneurs, tips on early road food, and some really corny jokes. This book gives readers a taste of life during this turbulent time.
