Saturday Evening Post cover August 22, 1953.
Rockwell brought his son Peter and a group of classmates from Putney, Vermont, to be photographed modeling for The Soda Jerk. The idea was based on Peter's own experience manning soda fountains for a summer job. Rockwell had each of his subjects photographed individually and combined them for the final composition, placing them in a setting assembled from photographs taken in a nearby diner.
