Re: Slightly OT: Culver City's old Airport Village eateries c.1960

Hamburger Handout: My recollection was that the hamburgers were 19
cents and the french fries were 11 cents. The food was always served fresh
and hot. The hamburgers were similar to McDonalds small hamburgers and the
fries were served in paper bags just like McDonalds small order of fries.
