Remember These Days

Remember These Days

For Walter Backerman, seltzer is more than a drink, it’s the embodiment of his family. As a third generation seltzer man, he follows the same route as his grandfather did decades ago, delivering hundreds of reusable antique seltzer bottles a week. But after 90 years of business, Walter may be the last seltzer man in New York.
