ABOUT THIS PHOTOGRAPH
Pictured is Lee Ah Ding and Yee Chee Ching by a Red Hot Frankfurters stall, trying American street food for the first time. The pair are the first Chinese seamen to be granted shore leave in New York City during World War II. Lee, left, refused a Red Hot Frankfurter, but drank the Pepsi Cola. It would be another forty years before Pepsi would be introduced to China, and remains one of the best-selling drinks in the world. Bob's Cola, a brand-new soda manufacturer, lasted less than 20 years, closing in 1955. Hot dogs are still a big seller in New York. – Jordan J. Lloyd
