Hollywood Café, El Paso, Texas, 1933
El Paso, Texas, in the 1930s, must have been an interesting place. The city that started out as a sleepy, dusty little adobe village had evolved in a flourishing frontier municipality. Conrad Hilton opened his first hotel in El Paso during this era and the airport which had been built a few years earlier in 1928, vastly increased the number of visitors. This menu from The Hollywood Café and Nightclub marks this innovation by featuring a little propeller plane flying overhead. The restaurant was open 24 hours and had a house orchestra which played daily to liven things up. The bill of fare was presented in both Spanish and English. El Paso Street, where the restaurant was situated, is the city's first and oldest street.
