Thursday, July 27, 1933

I went out and played with the kids around here this morning. I read my magazine, then I let Pauline read it. Went to the ballgame.

                             Until 1933 every Coke served at a soda fountain was
                             mixed by hand. The Coke syrup was put in a glass, the
                             carbonated water added, and they were stirred together
                             with a spoon.

                             When Coca-Cola debuted the first automatic fountain
                             dispenser (pictured below) at the Century of Progress
                             Exhibition in Chicago, people were amazed to see an
                             already-mixed Coke served by just pulling a handle.
