Market Café Menu Board

circa 1960

Menu display board advertising the tariff for ‘Special Teas’ at Stockport’s market hall cafe. It consists of a large wooden board with black facing, decorated with hand-painted white letters. 

The board was salvaged by museum staff during the refurbishment of the market hall. Made and used locally in Stockport Market, the board gives pre-decimal prices for meals which are still favourites on café menus today. Mmmm beans.
