Boston Sunday Herald advertisement from the 1890s

The New York Public Library has a collection of hundreds of posters that newspapers back in the 1890s would print up every week to try to entice readers. Among them: Posters for the Boston Sunday Herald - which went from the lowbrow to the sophisticated:

Chocolate vs cocoa

By on

The menu lists both Chocolate and Cocoa. What's the difference? (I guess it's like the old Milk Shake vs Frappe controversy.)

In the vernacular they are

In the vernacular they are interchangable but technically hot chocolate contains the cocoa butter that hot cocoa lacks.

Fried Oysters

Is it me, or do I not see these on any menus at seafood places today?

We found them on many menus in New Orleans, on our trip there about four years ago. Loved them. You're right, though; haven't seen them on a menu here lately.

Fried Oysters Not A Regular Menu Item, But Sometimes A "Special"

By on

Oysters aren't always available and must be really fresh to be good. The Anchor Bar in Beverly has the best seafood anywhere, and occasionally they'll have fried oysters on the special board. Whenever I've had them there, they've been sweet, delicate, and absolutely delicious!

Across the street from Beverly Harbor, seafood at the Anchor Bar is literally right off the boat — always fresh, and inexpensively priced. Eat at the bar or in the dining room, but beware: they're very crowded on Friday evenings. Get there early, or else try another night or for lunch.

Just over the Route-1A Bridge from Salem, or a short walk from the Beverly commuter rail station. Call ahead and ask if fried oysters are on the special board: (978) 921-0504.

Imagine?

Is the Herald's politics section usually less than 12 pages? Or, Doesn't the Herald already do a Red Sox preview every year?

Couldn't decide which snarky comment to go with, so you guys get a twofer.
