Today my friend, Mary and drove over to Hillsboro to poke around in the shops. There are several shops that full of vintage things. We had lunch in a pharmacy that has its original soda fountain/lunch counter. It dates from the 1873.
We had sandwiches and diet cokes, valiantly passing up the delightful old-time specialties. What I really would have liked, is one of the soda fountain treats that I remember from my childhood, such as:
a cherry soda
a chocolate malt.
