Lunch Hour NYC exhibit

Although the exhibition at the New York City Public Library, "Lunch Hour NYC," is over, there is an online exhibit HERE . It is fun to see the links have been put on the 'doors' of the Automat...

From the website (as is the picture above): " Lunch Hour NYC looks back at more than a century of New York lunches, when the city’s early power brokers invented what was yet to be called “power lunch,” local charities established a 3-cent school lunch, and visitors with guidebooks thronged Times Square to eat lunch at the Automat. Drawing on materials from throughout the Library, the exhibition explores the ways in which New York City—work-obsessed, time-obsessed, and in love with ingenious new ways to make money—reinvented lunch in its own image."
