Advert For Chas. Savage's Dinning Rooms
Medium: Print on paper
The proprietor advertising his dinning rooms on this leaflet is promoting the sandwiches that he sold. Sandwiches were very popular during the 19th century. The idea of putting meat between 2 slices of bread originated with John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich. He was an addictive gambler who hated to leave a game to go to eat a formal dinner. He asked his cook to prepare a nutritious meal that he could eat quickly and that would leave one hand free to play cards. The rest as they say, is history!
