Fountains of Youth

fairleys150pharmx.jpgIn a quest for an old-school experience, WWeek visits the soda fountains at Paulsen's Pharmacy and Fairley's Pharmacy, the last remaining drugstore soda fountains in Portland. Both are nearly 100 years old, and both happen to be located on NE Sandy Boulevard, "the one street that time has chosen not to visit." Among a parade of egg creams, phosphate sodas, and milkshakes, WW declares: "I don't know whether I feel young again or really old." [WW] [Photo: Facebook]
