Windsor Ladies Cafe

From the Cumberland Evening Times,
October 21, 1905
Windsor Ladies Cafe

Location: Baltimore Street, Cumberland, Maryland, USA

Opened/Closed: Around 1905

This is an interesting ad for a ladies cafe, in that even the entrances to the gentlemen's cafe and the ladies' cafe are clearly distinguished. They are even located off separate streets, as if to emphasize the point. 

Very typical turn-of-the-century menu: pheasant, quail, oysters "in all styles." You almost never see food like that anymore, even in mixed company.
