Those Were the Days, My Friend!

By Alex Sachare '71

If you're old enough to remember when you could eat a full meal on campus and still get change back for your buck, this 1941 Lions Den menu uncovered by Jack Williamson '44 should bring a smile to your face. Check out the prices below: The most expensive items on the menu, the Junior Club sandwich and the chicken salad with tomato slices, cost a whopping 40 cents, while a cheeseburger went for 15 cents and a hamburger deluxe could be had for 20 cents. A cup of coffee cost a nickel and ice cream was just a dime. For comparison, a chicken club sandwich in Café (212), one of the eateries in the new Lerner Hall, costs $4.49.
