    Martin, The graphic is explained by the common management by Sidney Hoedemaker of that chain with the Pig ‘n Whistle restaurants. It also appeared in identical form on Pig ‘n Whistle menus. Later, Hoedemaker would open another chain—Hody’s—based on the American pronunciation of his name. The Melody Lane at Hollywood and Vine thus became a Hody’s.

    Interesting that they date their menus. And the postmark shows this menu was sent just days after the visitors ate there.

    They also must not have changed prices in 1942.

    I don’t know if these prices were considered “inexpensive” in their day, but I wouldn’t mind if they were the same today!

    Thanks for sharing, Martin.
