Hey Old timers how old is this menu


Hey all

I stopped by the Cotton Club about 25 years ago and picked up am old menu and framed it on purple and gold for my dad. It is signed by Louis Constantine.

I am not sure how well this image will appear since I have never posted a pic to a forum

Here are some prices

Fried shrimp 1.50
Rib eye 2.00
1/2 fried chicken 1.45 whole 2.60

Case of Jax 3.79 hot 4.13 cold

I hope the pic shows up.

How old do you think this is?

Thanks

I sized the pics medium, perhaps they would look better if I sent them actual size.

Regardless of the size you upload them, you can change the size they will display as on here.

They were the Constantino's. Don't be anglicizing their name. Place was awesome.

ETA, But I'm not old enough to remember them serving Jax Beer or $1.50 shrimp dinners. I do recall being a kid and having to get in John Mahaffey's way so we could get up and play the trivia machine/poker machiney thing on the bar. Dude was pretty much implanted there for any time he actually wasn't on the air.

I took the pics with my phone when emailing to photobucket it prompted me for actual, small,medium, etc.

I chose medium. I guess they would look better if I chose actual.

I am 62 and based on the prices on that menu it was printed way before my time. Probably late 50's - early 60's.

And it looks like the phone number was D12-8455.
Did they have numbers that started with alpha?
