ICE CREAM Social
The 1940s & 1950s were the heyday of the soda fountains, with the red vinyl stools along a Formica counter and black and white checkerboard floors. A friendly man with a white paper hat behind the counter, called a soda jerk at that time, was ready to make an ice cream sundae, ice cream float, ice cream soda, phosphate soda, soda water, malted milk, shake or egg cream just for you. Each of those treats was served in a soda fountain glass, a sundae dish, a parfait cup, banana split dish, or a footed tumbler. Vintage Grace will help you find fun dishes for serving your at home ice cream parlor treats.
