This sign and abandoned restaurant are beside US Highway 20 in the very small town of Powder River, Wy. I was hungry when I passed by, and I wish I could have tried one of those “sizzlin steaks.” – David Roberts, Flickr

Let’s send it to Uncle Frank!

Burnham’s in New York began as E. S. Burnham Co. Manufacturers Grocers’ Specialties at 120 Gansevoort St. around 1894, and moved to 53-61 Gansevoort in 1897. They were located here until 1929. Their products were groceries, produce, and druggist sundries. Apparently the sundries included medicinal tonics and extracts, as well as clam bouillon. – Walter Grutchfield
