Vintage Postcards: Dining Across America In The ’50s & ’60s

Let’s view some vintage postcards and check out what was available for lunch and dinner across the US in the ’50s and ’60s. Mind you, this is not a comprehensive gallery, not at all. Take it just as a sampler, and appetizer of sorts about the offer back then.

I’ve already talked about my fondness for diners, and done a postcard gallery about the subject too. And I can see a few places in this post that if I had a time machine, I would go and try. Maybe even starting with Chal’s Drive In (above), in Cambridge, OH.
