From the cover of McCall's Magazine August 1954, a strawberry soda that's pretty in pink!
The picture below is from the book Diner by Diane Rossen Worthington, published by Sunset books in 1995. This is my favorite kind of cookbook- gorgeous color photographs, delicious-looking recipes, and these are all photographed in diner settings with all of the food on vintage restaurant china! Pictured here, a tall and luscious chocolate shake with a burger and fries (hold the soup). This reminds me of the lunch I had at Mel's in Jackson, Ca. last month. I met my two best friends there, and we had lunch and went to see Wall-E afterward. It was a great day.
Next up, two pages out of Betty Crocker's New Boys And Girls Cookbook, published in 1965. Cool down this summer with a Chocolate Soda or a Blushing Pink Soda:
or maybe a Banana-Orange Frosted or Grape Float:
And here's something I can have on Weight Watchers, too. A Root Beer Float! I'll make mine with Diet A&W and Dreyer's Slow-Churned Vanilla Ice Cream
The float picture is from the book "You're Invited A Cookbook For Special Occasions' by Mary Engelbreit. I love the photos in Mary's cookbooks , too. Most of them include vintage dishes and glassware, and even some great collectibles.
