1898; BEFORE IT WAS E.L. KERNS
Mr. Kerns married a young lady by the name of Lizzie Meyers back in the late 1890's and apparently got his start in the business of selling beer and ultimately soda. I have on old Kerns and Meyer soda bottle in my collection. As for me, I am now and was back then a fan of Kern's Cream Soda. RED in color, not yellow! More to come on Kerns in a future post. The Rose Street above is no more, having morphed in Old and New Rose Streets. Interestingly, Meyer Court still exists in the area of Sanford, Old Rose and Brunswick Avenue.
Tom: Kern's Cream Soda was my favorite also. Root Beer was great too. Is All-Fathers Candy Co. still around?
