Pace doesn't believe in the Depression. In his pharmacy he is installing a soda fountain and equipment that represents what is probably the largest building investment on the street in recent months. The soda fountain is of massive Tennessee marble construction and is the last word in that sort of equipment. It is equipped with electrical or mechanical refrigeration and cooling. There are even mechanically cooled compartments for the glasses and spoons and the whole design of construction is to secure perfect sanitation and cleanliness.
