J. L. HUDSON'S DINING ROOM MENU CIRCA 1973-74


I bought this at a fairly disappointing estate sale that I had gone pretty much empty-handed at until arriving at the pay table on the front lawn. But there it was sprawled out next to the jewelry and collectibles case. Nobody seemed to want it so I asked the price. $2 said the cashier and it was mine mine mine.

Well, for the interim anyway. I flipped it on eBay for about $20 to somebody who could appreciate it way more than me. Although I like the nostalgia and grand nature of what the department store stood for, I don't really remember much of it except for the waning days at the suburban malls. Which is a far cry from the downtown location which I have no recollection of despite having gone there.
