My Mom owned a Dairy Queen for 25 years in the 60's/ 70's into the 80's. Part of my upbringing, get out of school and go to work at the Dairy Queen. This Hamilton Beech malt dispenser was old when she bought the store, dates to the 40's. My best momento to those days. Although still fully functional, it now is primarily on display in my home. (How many malts can one drink anyways).
