The book and this FAQ mentioned company archives available at the New York Public Library. Would anyone know of any archive resources in the Philadelphia area? I couldn't find any reference in the main Philadelphia library.

What animal did the coffee dispensers resemble at Horn and Hardarts Automats?

They were dolphin heads, based on a fountain Joe Horn saw on a trip to Italy.

Thanks for the information about the coffee dispensers. I have read they were a duck and an eagle and in my minds eye a little clouded with nostalgia they were a lion. But I always volunterd to get my Mom's coffee just to watch that hot dark liquid squirt from the dispenser.
