about

Originally 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 nostalgic appeal.
