Bade's Restaurant


As I was going through Dad's photos, I came across a bunch that were dated 1946-1949, Oscoda Air Base, Michigan. Nearly all of them had "Bade's Gang" written on the back.

It wasn't until I came across this particular shot that I realized what "Bade's Gang" was referring to!


When I looked closer, I had to smile at the prices ...

Steak .85
Chop .75
Fish 1.10

Wow.

Classic.

This photo is keeper. If the food prices were that low people must have been working for less than a dollar per hour. At least they were working.

Do you know the age of this photo? It looks like early 1940s to me. My mom told me that she made $3 a week in the late 1930s.
I love old photos.

I bet he wasn't trying to get the prices immortalized, but it makes for a great way to date the photo.

There are so many things I wished I could have asked him--wished we could have gone through these pictures and heard the stories. This picture is just delightful.
