About this Exploration:


Bankes

Make it a quest to visit each of the 38 soda fountains!  You'll see many different styles.  A few date back to the 1920's and are located in their original location with the back bar, mirror, brass rail, and marble counter. Those built after 1950 have Formica counter-tops and some early marble tops have been converted to Formica.

Stop by Bankes Healthmart Drug Store
Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Saturday 8:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.

It's a 1920's seven-stool soda fountain with round mirror and 1972 Formica counter top.
