Artifact Archive: Soda and Phosphate flavoring syrup bottles

Mary Allen and Blanch O’Dell’s sweet shop offered teas, sweets and luncheons. Each of these soda and phosphate flavoring syrups from their shop has a measuring cap on the top. Advertisements invited customers to "Bring your wife and sweetheart for an ‘after the show’ treat and she will be sure you love her". In 1928, Mr. and Mrs. Joe Standard leased and redecorated the shop in green and lavender, adding a marble fountain from another business to increase efficiency. One new service was holding bridge parties for local hostesses not wanting to entertain at home.
