Matchbox from Chunk's Cafe in Lima, Ohio

Chunk’s Cafe advertised Wines, Liqueur & beer, cigars, cigarettes, now that you got up your nerve, there’s dancing on Friday and Saturday night. If you want to trip the light fantastic on say, Wednesday, there must have been a jukebox, but Chunk would come out and point his spatula at you and say, “HEY!! Dancing is on FRIDAY and SATURDAY night! This is HUMP DAY!”

Chunk kind of scares me.

On the inside there is a rubber stamp for the A.W.V.S. Canteen at the railroad station. Probably another of Chunk’s income streams.
