When A Dollar Was Worth A Dollar

IMG_2219We stumbled across this fading barfront sign as we walked through New Orleans to the Bywater neighborhood.  Imagine!  Cold Dixie bottled beer for only 13 cents each — and highballs for only 35 cents a pop.  Of course, that was back when people actually drank a drink called a “highball.”

The beers that we drank in New Orleans this past weekend all cost more than $5 a bottle.
