Toscano, Chicago 1940s


This 1940s beverage list of two waiters manfully carrying a giant cocktail glass is a lovely reminder of Chicago’s other Little Italy on the city’s lower west side. Both men, in their white aprons, look as if they are expending a lot of energy in bringing the glass to a customer’s table. This imaginative cover art was from Toscano, which opened in 1923 and which stayed in business for over 60 years.
