Automat 1942 NYC

More family history from a postcard.automat pcSome old postcards almost need translation.  Here Aunt Helen tells my sister about eating at the Automat in New York City in 1942.  Quite an experience for an out-of-towner!

Dear Jean,
One of the things I enjoyed in New York was eating in an Automat.  There were many boxes each containing some kind of food.  Just put in a nickel and out comes whatever you want to eat.  Helen
