Here's a pair of lobster postcards to whet our appetites for these delectable crustaceans!
The first is a nice linen card from Boone's Restaurant in Portland, Maine, my home town. The locals don't eat at Boone's -- it's for the tourists, so the man with the bib on is definately "from away."
The second card is from Eugene's Seafood, at the Hotel Juneau in Milwaukee. I have seen other postcards on the web for Eugene's, but this is the only one I've seen with a photo of him and his trusty manager Mrs. J. W. Pfeifer. The back has a nice description of the place:
When in Milwaukee, Stop at...Eugene's Hotel Juneau. Milwaukee's Lake Cooled All Modern Hotel. 807-15 East Wisconsin Avenue. Downtown overlooking the Lake. Beautiful Juneau Park, Elks Club and one-half block from C. & N. W. Depot. Rates with bath $1.75 and up; without bath less. Convenient parking space. Famous for sea food. No larger variety anywhere. Air conditioned dining rooms. Coffee Shop, Tavern and Lobby. Recommended by Duncan Hines.
