This Week in History – Christmas Dinner

344.02.50

The Crown Cafe is visible on the north side of Richmond Avenue in the 100-101 Street block (8th building from the left in this photograph, to the right of the pool hall with a peaked roof), ca. 1920.

 

I found menus for Christmas Dinner to be served in local cafes published in the paper in 1913 and 1921. Neither would be out of place in a restaurant today.
