Haha, I like that, thank you, Spookcat.  There used to be a salad dressing company with my name but I haven't seen it for awhile.  I guess they went out of business.

Duckduckgo to the rescue!

 "Look for the "Masa's" and "Rikki's" Brands at:
Whole Foods, Safeway, QFC, PCC, Kroger's, Sam's Club, Costco, Fred Meyer, Save Mart, Uwajimaya, Eastern WA/OR Grocery Chain Stores and Many Asian Stores in Chicago, NY, NJ and Washington DC. "
Time spent with cats is never wasted.

Goodness gracious!  Nice find.  Thank you Spookcat.  I used to buy my salad dressing at Fred Meyer but they stopped selling it a year or so ago.  I guess that is why I thought that the company had gone out of business.  If you see Chef Terada while you are out and about, please give him my best regards.

Another nice postcard on the weekly postcard auction.

If you want to get three of these luscious looking burgers for 33 cents, (plus tax) then you had better hurry.  The offer expired back on April 11, 1971.

I wonder why they put the tomato in the background and not put the burgers in a triangle to make them pop.

I like the wood paneling and the wood chairs that wrap around with armrests to keep the elbows off the table.

Yes, I liked the wood décor too.  I didn't search all that much, but I think the place is no longer in existence.

Thanks, anniem.  The Dearborn has gone through some major reconstruction work.  Sadly, it looks as though the Old English Coffee Shop didn't survive the changes.

Here are some photos I found of it.

The rustic pier is a nice touch.

Politics are in the news on a daily basis, so here is a political postcard from 1980.

Mr. Mutz (the guy on the right) was elected as Lt. Governor of Indiana.  He's still alive.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Mutz   But the guy he was elected to serve with (Governor Orr) is no longer with us.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_D._Orr

Any idea on the location of this building?  It strikes me of a high school or a public building that was just completed with the small trees surrounded it.
