Hamburger 5 cents

Hamburger 5 cents
Hey I know there's a cute little lady to look at, but my eye goes right to the burger and card shop signs. This tiny print is a found photo.

My eye goes to the price of the burger.
"The socio-economic environment of the United States at the time of the burger's rise to popularity coincided with the end of World War I and the beginning of the Great Depression of 1929. This environment was particularly favorable for fostering inexpensive food, which was one reason why five-cent hamburgers were so popular."
