Retro Lock, Stock & Barrel Dinner & Waitresses

It’s too hot to cook, right?

Well, back in the day, decades ago, you could go on over to Lock, Stock & Barrel in Fair Haven, where Nauvoo Grill Club now sits, for a  $3.50 prime rib dinner. Yes, you read that right. See?

Check out the ad from probably the early 1970s. While school was in, kids would walk over from what was then Willow Street School (now Viola L. Sickles) during lunch hour for a huge burger, fries, a salad and a cherry coke — all for less than $1. True hometown story. Oh, then the kids walked over to the penny candy store down the street for a few Red Hot Dollars, Swedish Fish and a candy necklace.

Many of the Lock, Stock waitresses were Fair Haven moms, some of them Fair Haven Fire Company Ladies’ Auxiliary members.

So, the Retro Pic(s) of the Day, courtesy of native Fair Havenite Evie Connor Kelly, is a look back at those ladies all dressed up and performing a Lock Stock waitressing spoof at a fire company event and a look at a menu.

Prime rib and a song and dance, anyone? Remember these ladies? They knew all the kids.
