HOW BOB'S BIG BOY FIT IN THE 1950s

CHERISHING OUR VALLEY       2013



Bob's Big Boy menu - October 1955  Gift to The Museum of the San Fernando Valley from Arlene Bernholtz - May 2013.  Ticket stub for the All City High School Playoff preliminary Dec. 2, 1955 (click on image to enlarge it.) 

To history's good fortune, Arlene Bernholtz as a high school girl, borrowed this large menu from Bob's Big Boy restaurant and made notes around it. Life for a high school student emerges in the treasures Arlene put in her scrapbook. She even saved some of the football programs mentioned in her notes.
