Change in beef prices, 1948

Posted on August 12, 2016 | in Uncategorized | by
Henry Anderson, butcher at the New Sanitary Market at 124 North Broadway, was shown shifting a price tag on round steak from $.85 a pound to $.75 cents a pound on February 13, 1948. The drop in beef prices was attributed to a break in the grain and commonly markets. Today, $.75 would have the same buying power as $7.50. Published in the Lexington Herald February 14, 1948.
