Robertson’s Cafe, Benge, WA

My dad’s mom’s dad ran Robertson’s Cafe in Benge, Washington (which counts as the greater Washtucna area) about a century ago.  That’s just after the 1907 founding of the town.

This is his stationery.

The prosperous-looking fellow is saying, “I eat at Robertson’s.”  His lean friend says, “I don’t but I shall!”
