ICE BOX FOR BOTTLED DRINKS MAKES TEMPTING DISPLAY (May, 1924)

This is a really cool design, the only real problem is that you have to sell your soda at a slow and steady pace. If you sold seven bottles of one kind in a short period of time, the next one would be warm.

ICE BOX FOR BOTTLED DRINKS MAKES TEMPTING DISPLAY
For cooling bottled drinks, a unique ice box consisting of a number of J-shaped chutes into which bottles are placed, one flavor for each compartment, has been patented. Ice stored in the refrigerator and covering the lower part of the chutes which curve up under the storage chamber, cools the bottles as they pass through. By pressing down on the bottles turned upside down in the delivery tubes, a fresh container appears within easy reach. It is not necessary to open the box to get out a bottle and the row of bottles is visible through a glass cover.

    Since the standard was an open chest of sodas in iced or chilled water I can see why this never caught on.

    Imagine having this all covered and a coin-controlled dispenser attached.

    What would you get: the pop machine.
