    When my husband’s grandfather first came to America from England in 1910, he worked as a waiter in several restaurants. These photos were found among his son’s old photographs. The first one was taken outside the Budweiser Cafe in July of 1911 in Indianapolis. Here’s a sample of their menu:
    1912 The Indianapolis Star Feb 16 – advertisement: Budweiser Café, German Cooking Our Specialty, 20 South Meridian – 17 East Pearl St.
    Coney Island Clam Chowder            10c

    Filet of Salmon a la Colbert            35c
    Roast Stuffed Capon with Sliced Peaches    40c
    Hamburger Steak, with Smothered Onions and Potatoes    25c

    The second photo was taken at the Ye Wee Tappie Tavern in Jan. of 1913 in Miami. It was owned by William Ogden, who also owned the Biscayne Bay Co., a fruit growing and shipping company and it was Miami’s first luxurious saloon. Dade County went dry later in 1913 and so did the tavern a few years later. There was once a plaque in the hotel where it was located which read: “The Ye Wee Tappie Tavern, a gaudy gilt tavern, born in champagne in 1911. Died in lemonade before it was seven.”

    Thank you Jan! :)
