TITLE   Mack's Cafe
DESCRIPTION   Interior view of Mack's Cafe in Corpus Christi, Texas. A man in a cook's outfit and a woman in wait staff attire stand behind a serving counter lined with white stools. The cafe's menu is posted on the wall, and it includes ham and eggs for 25¢, homemade pie for 10¢, and hot and cold drinks for 5¢. A National Recovery Administration (NRA) sign, a "No Checks Cashed" sign, and a notice advertising the sale of pasteurized milk in the cafe are posted on the wall. At that time, it was not mandatory to pasteurize milk. Note the Razzle Dazzle gaming device with the glass dome and the white cash register behind it.
