I remember when you could get a ham sandwich for 25 cents…

This is the inside of the menu I posted last week. I don’t really know what year this is from — my guess is late 1940’s. Perhaps someone that can remember when a ham sandwich was 25 cents can lend their expertise. Here are some closer looks:

I’m guessing that a “plain” milkshake vs. a milkshake with “ice cream” was a glass of guernsey milk shaken up. Remember, back then it was “real” whole milk so that would probably give you a nice thick frothy plain milk shake.

  1. Very interesting to see that the closest the menu gets to a hamburger is “minced ham,” which isn’t very close at all.
