Way Back When: Thanksgiving Prices
By Betsy J. Green
Here's what $1.25 would get you 100 years ago in Santa Barbara: relishes, celery, ripe olives, turkey gumbo soup, shrimp salad, roast turkey with celery dressing, cranberry sauce, hot mince pie, plum pudding with hard sauce, and your choice of coffee, milk, and/or tea.
The Splendid Cafe was a new restaurant back in 1920. The cafe was only here during the 1920s. Its location at 623 State Street is now a Vans clothing store.
Have a safe Thanksgiving, everyone!
