Fort Lewis, 1969

Army personnel could choose from cold and hot snacks at the built-in vending machines at Fort Lewis in January of 1969. Milk, sodas and ice cream were located near the right wall, and soups and dry snacks were on the left. Bright red chairs coupled with turquoise tables provided space to dine and gather.
