57 Broad Street cafeteria lunch menus

Dublin Core

Title 57 Broad Street cafeteria lunch menus
Description From over the heads of the clamoring curb folk away down in the valley of Broad Street there arises from a score of ‘cookeries' and ‘hand-outs' a decided smell of the stewpot blended with the ever-glorious onion. —The New York Times, 1907. Not much is known about the 57 Broad Street cafeteria in downtown New York City, but according to The New York Times only a few years after these menus were printed, the area around Broad Street was known for its intoxicating lunchtime aromas.
