Milam Cafeterias lunch plate with a line drawing of a bride and groom. "Milam Cafeterias" is printed in black. The plate is white with an orange stripe around the inside border. The plate measures 8" in diameter and is in good condition with only some minor scratching on the white. The logo is minimally faded. I have a set of 12. Price is for each. Email me for a price break on multiple plates.
Milam Cafeterias was located in San Antonio, Texas, in the Milam Building, named for Col. Ben Milam, a leading figure in the Texas Revolution. The building opened in 1928 and was the first high-rise building in the US to have air conditioning. Other locations of this chain were Fort Worth and Austin. The Milam opened as a drugstore and eatery in 1931 and closed after over 70 years of operation in 2011.
