B/G Sandwich Shops "What is a B/G Sandwich Shop?" Fold-Out Ad

? B/G Sandwich Shops, 1924.

A single pictorial sheet (12.5" x 7.5") with a rounded top flap, folded a total of four times and illustrated in black, orange and blue, to create a postcard with space for stamp in corner. Very Good with light evidence of erased penciled address and notes on lines of postcard panel, rubbing along crease in middle of panel. Edges lightly worn.

An illustrated ad for early 20th century American restaurant chain B/G Sandwich Shops, which paved the way for McDonald's by offering fast lunches, courteous service with tipping discouraged, a uniform design to various locations, and not selling alcohol. The ad contains the short piece "What is a B/G Sandwich Shop?," a photo of a typical restaurant, and plenty of boosterism declaring the chain to be 'Purely American." A neat little slice of America's rapidly-evolving food culture. Item #140937539

Price: $75.00
