The Last Seltzer Bottler in Brooklyn

There is a fascinating sample of the a documentary on the last old fashioned seltzer bottler in Brooklyn.

In the early 1900s thousands of seltzer deliverymen criss-crossed the nation, schlepping heavy glass bottles full of fizzy water to millions of thirsty customers.
