Well now, Doug, I grew up in Boulder, Colorado, and they made milkshakes 
with ice cream there. Bet they still do. If Custard's Last Stand is still 
in existence on Broadway, it used to be the site of Bush's famous drive-in, 
where they made peanut butter shakes (reluctantly, since the blender was 
hell to clean) and the predecessor of the Big Mac. Also, you could order a 
glass of root beer and cream or double cream, and you'd get those tiny 
glass cream containers to dump into your root beer.  Yummmm. And further 
down Broadway, between Pearl and Walnut was a large fountain owned by a 
dairy. Watts Hardy was one of the dairies, but i think the fountain was 
owned by another.  They used to make and sell "walking sundaes," ice cream 
in a cup topped with sundae toppings.
