Burger & Shake 19¢

From Wednesday, February 13, 1957. Kingsport News

As I’ve noted before, my Kingsport Times paper route took me down Shelby Street, behind the Post Office (it became the library in ’61). The tempting smells coming from Pal’s made my stomach rumble. Still does, even today.

For the record, $1 in 1957 would be worth $9.36 in 2021(CPI Inflation Calculator)
