This 1902 (or maybe 1903) Toomer’s Drugs beverage menu is too fancy for you

Lemonade? Please. Looking at this menu (found recently on eBay) we can’t help but think that, if you ordered just a plain ol’ lemonade in Auburn 110 years ago, the dandies behind the counter at Lazarus & Toomer’s would probably call you a rube behind your back.

The Pan-American Ade and Huckleberry Dew connoisseurs would probably say it to your face.

I mean, if you’re going to order a lemonade, at least make it an Apollanaris or a Vichy. Sheesh.
