tumblrtumblr2San Francisco Chronicle, June 6, 1899. I vaguely recall doing something like this at a Sals once.



  1. At Sals!!!


    • Between late-night drunks and answering to Burton Cummings, those waitresses earn their paychecks.

  2. Hahahaahahaa!

  3. I was not aware there were breakfast restaurants open at 4am in 1899. I thought the whole open-24-hours thing was a more recent trend (it hasn’t caught on yet in Finland – we’re still working on “open on Sunday”).

    • Interesting point. But I bet there would have been a lot of tradespeople getting up pretty early in the less-mechanized 1890s, and they had would have had to eat somewhere. So maybe it’s a cyclical thing?
