Ad in the Eastern News (Feb. 1966)

Walt Mizener recently posted this newspaper ad on his Facebook page - - with his permission, I share it here. Today he has it framed in his New Hampshire home.

It is a joint ad for the Ko-Op, Walt's, and the Short Stop - - must be near the time that the Short Stop opened. Walt said that it was found in his father's house.

Notice those 1938 prices at Walt's. A meal with a jumbo milk shake for 20 cents. I can't remember when I've heard the phrase 'Combination Salad?' Tuition and room rent are a bargain. Can you still recite the sandwich list from the Sixties menu?
