Thrifty Thursday - Mel's 19 cent hamburgers - Pomona

Did any of you live in the Pomona California area in the 1960s?  Did you ever go to Mel’s?  It was located at 304 East Holt;  at the corner of Holt and Palomares).  They had 19 cent hamburgers and 21 cent cheeseburgers; just what starving college students needed on weekends when the Cal Poly cafeteria was closed, or when we needed something other than cafeteria food.

What a difference 50 years makes!  (Oh, is that hard to write!!!!)  But now we can buy 99 cent hamburgers.  So maybe things aren’t that bad.
