Mystery: Soda Fountain

Posted Friday, January 6, 2012, at 12:00 AM

We have no idea where Frony shot this picture of a soda fountain, possibly in the 1950s.

A small grocery appears to be at the left, with a small meat display case and scale above it.

How soon we forget. That looks just like Albertson's...

Fred Lynch has captured images for the Southeast Missourian since 1975, in that time moving from black-and-white to color, from film to digital and to video. The blog title is a nod to an earlier era of news photography and the 4x5 Speed Graphic: It's more important to be there for the shot than to worry about technical details.
