Tea at the Blue Lantern Inn: Social History of the Tea Room Craze in America: Book written by Jan Whitaker and published by St. Martin’s Press, New York, in 2002. Stated first edition, first printing. Hard cover book with dust jacket. 192 pages. Dust jacket has some dings. Book is in mint condition. Never read.
Beautifully researched, semi-academic book of women’s history in the United States during the 1920s. Written in a conversational tone, with lots of amusing detail. Illustrated with photographs and tea room memorabilia that Whitaker collected over ten years. For example, the illustrations on the front of the dust jackets are from Hoochschild, Kohn & Co. Department Store Tea Room, Baltimore, Maryland. The images on the back of the dust jacket are from LaSalle and Koch Tea Rooms, Toledo, Ohio, Roslyn Mill Tea House, Roslyn, New York and a matchbook cover from 1920.
This is NOT a cookbook. It is a difficult-to-find book about 1920s restaurants and their owners.
