Pepsi Cola Canteen

GG Pepsi Canten
Buy a 5-cent burger and get all the Pepsi you can drink! The Pepsi Cola Canteen at 13th and G Streets, NW offered servicemen and women low cost food, a reading/writing lounge, and facilities to record voice messages on a 78 rpm album to send back home. Washington’s Canteen- 1 of only 3 in the country- served over 9 million men and women during its operations between 1942 and 1945.
