That bike

Amazing bike. HUGE bars, and check out the saddle. I would love to ride that thing around town. I wonder if it's fixed or has a coaster brake.

Bevo

That Bevo must have been some concoction to warrant a dime a bottle! Probably a quart bottle, though. After all, when I was a kid in the '50s, Cokes were still only a nickel.

[Bevo was a popular nonalcoholic malt beverage made by Anheuser Busch. Wikipedia link. - Dave]

Nice pattern matching

...on the man's plaid cap!
