Then and now. Yesterday stopped in at Bob Evans for a sandwich and looked at the menu. My eyes landed on their Pot Roast sandwich with some fries-$8.50 or thereabouts. Here is a 1950's menu from Woolworths lunch counter. I guess it's all relative, we made less money, we paid less for lunch, but somehow it doesn't seem exactly relative when you dish out almost twenty dollars for two sandwiches and some fries.
