About this product
- DescriptionOriginally published in 1941, this pocket-sized volume preserves the language of diners and roadside restaurants during the '30s and '40s. From all hot (baked potato) to dog soup (water), the long-lost terms are part fascinating, part funny, and often politically incorrect by today's standards. Historic photos from the Library of Congress add stalgic appeal.
