In my review last week of S & S Diner at Allen’s Drugstore, I wrote that “way back when our grandparents were eating better/worse than we, it wasn’t unusual to have eateries located within pharmacies”. Tim Hogle, owner of Tantra Restaurant & Lounge, saw the article and forwarded me this photo of the Tantra building when it was Pennway pharmacy in the late 1930's or 40's. “In case you can't make out the signs in the windows,” he writes, “they say ‘breakfast 20 cents ... lunch 5 courses 40 cents ... and dinner 6 courses 50 cents!’”
