Tray Vittles – Yum!

Image of a woman displaying box of takeout food

In June of 1954, customers at Scotty's Cafe, 29 Tacoma Ave. North, could purchase Tray Vittles, "delicious foods served conveniently", packaged in easy-to-carry boxes. The complete hot dinners, which might have included soup, burgers & fries, turkey and mashed potatoes, and a large wedge of pie, could be consumed at home, in hotel rooms, offices, banquets, and even in cars. In this customer's print made in June, 1954, Beverly "Bev" Loska, dressed tidily in white cap and uniform, displays boxes of Tray Vittles. Scotty's Cafe was owned by Joseph W. Carbone.
