Benson's Drug Store
Date: 1940 Size: 470x337 pixels
Benson's Drug Store, a few doors north of the Auburn Grille, remained open late on Friday and Saturday nights to catch the hungry during intermission of college dances.  Virtually all of the customers in this picture hurried to Benson's during the break in a 1940 midterm dance.  Note the metal shakers on the table.  The milk shakes they contained cost a dime.  Sandwiches, unless you wanted something fancy, were fifteen cents.  The ham and cheese was twenty cents and the club a quarter.
