Most Americans were still in the throes of the Great Depression. Even so, many found the time to take a Saturday night fling and go out dining and dancing at one of the many venues available. I find these advertisements to be a fascinating look back at the Trenton area of my mother and father's day. Should this blog survive the years long after I have gone to my reward, I believe succeeding generations will also find these ads to be of historic interest.
HI TOM....NOT ONLY WERE MOST DINNERS 25 CENTS BUT SOME PLACES WERE OFFERING CHICKEN DINNERS FOR FREE. I WAS JUST A TEENAGER IN 1937 BUT WENT TO THESE RESTAURANTS WITH MY OLDER FRIENDS FOR THE FOOD. IT MAY HAVE BEEN A PERIOD OF GREAT DEPRESSION BUT THERE WERE MANY CAFES AROUND TO VISIT. BEST REGARDS.
