Limited edition giclée print of The Soda Jerk II from The Jobs of Yesteryear Series. Printed on acid-free paper with archival inks and mounted permanently to a custom-made wood box panel. This print is ready to hang and has the look of the original painting for a fraction of the cost. The Jobs of Yesteryear are thought-provoking conversation pieces that will bring an air of history and whimsy to any room.

Soda jerks operated soda fountains in drugstores and ice cream parlors, serving up flavored soda water and ice cream sodas. The title came from the jerking action used while working the handle of the soda fountain. Soda jerks reached their peak in the 1940s and the position was highly coveted. As ice cream parlors gave way to the popularity of drive-ins and fast good stands, the Soda Jerk and his fountain faded into obscurity.

The original Soda Jerk II was created using subdued tones of acrylic and watercolor paint. Overall, it has the feel of a vintage photograph steeped in history. The long-limbed characters were crafted using watercolor paper and pasted on the wood panel.
