A nostalgia post...

When I was a kid, and all the way through the mid 1980s, one of my favorite stores in the world was F. W. Woolworth's at the Cermak Plaza in Berwyn, Illinois. A sundries store, F.W. Woolworth had everything from goldfish to parakeets, from gloves to shoes-- During the early days of living on my own, Woolworth's saved me from frostbite on a number of occasions, as they usually had decent winter gloves at prices I could afford. One of the features that Woolworth's had was a pretty decent cafe. I received a copy of this Woolworth's menu from the 1950s (click on the pic to enlarge it).

Kinda neat, ain't it?
