Thank you Ebay! Below is an Ohop Bob menu I just purchased.

Prices
Take a look at the prices. A full breakfast — tomato juice, ham and eggs, toast and coffee — for .75.

The full dinner with cocktail, fried chicken, mashed potatoes, vegetables, salad, biscuits, dessert and drink, was $1.50.

    Add a zero to the right on MOST of the Items, and those would be about right for todays prices. so everything has multiplied by 10 times. Maybe 15, or 20 times on other things, like cars,houses, and gasoline !! Only about 5 times for wages though !! (or less, if unemployed at present !!) i still think I was born a generation too late , I really like the style of cars, clothes, and architecture of the 40’s !!
