1950's Woolworths Menu

If any of you have doubt about what we kids paid for a coke and a sandwich at Woolworth's in the 1950's, here's proof of the era we lived........and it was a GREAT ERA to live as a teenager !!!!

Nooooo Costanza, you socially divergent miscreant.
The "coke" in Coca Cola was eliminated after the turn of the century..

Although imagine the smile in the "coke and a smile" if it were still in there? Ahhhhhh.....

I still get a Coke for 10 cents, in a glass bottle, everyday.

One of my favorite memories of childhood is going to the Woolworth lunch counter with my mother after getting dragged out shopping with her and getting a grilled cheese, fries, & a milk.

Jordan Marsh in Braintree had one until only a few years before the axe fell.

Who else remembers blueberry muffins from the Jordan Marsh bakery?

Is Harry's on Rt. 9 in Westboro still around?
They used to do one hell of a roast pork dinner and awesome pastrami.

2 places in NH, Maryann's in Derry and The Red Arrow in Manchester.
At either, you will have one tasty and satisfying breakfast.
