.39 Cents for a Super Jumbo Banana Split?

In light of today’s stressed economy, I thought it would be nice to have a little flash-back to that great golden era…..  the 50’s.

Do you remember what you paid for a coke and a sandwich at Woolworth’s in the 1950’s?  (Do you even know what Woolworth’s was?)  Try paying ten cents for a ice-cold King Size bottle of Coke and forty cents for a super deluxe sliced ham, stacked high on bread, toast or a roll… your choice!  That’s a whoppin’ fifty cents for lunch, folks!

After that sandwich we could have them pour us a piping hot cup of that rich Woolworth coffee and then have them cut us a piece of that delicious “fifteen cent” layer cake… maybe chocolate! (These days, you couldn’t dust a cake pan with flour for “fifteen cents.”)  Or, if you don’t want cake, perhaps we’ll just have an “extra rich old fashioned ice cream soda” for “twenty five cents?”  I don’t know about you but it’s sure made my mouth water!

Oh, the good ole days!
