Let us compare the prices

Click here to enlarge

If we observe the prices on the panel, hamgurgers cost 45 cents and hot dogs 25 cents. Chips 25 cents and donuts 15 cents. A whole difference with today.

But let us not forget either that at that time in the small snacks-bar of the street corner in Montreal, it cost a lot cheaper than in the Expo to eat fast food. For example, not very far from my home, we could eat three hot dogs, a french fried and a coke for less than one dollard. And if my memory is good, a hamburger cost 20 cents and a bag of chips 5 cents

>> Alexa L. says to us that... <<

In 1967, in Quebec, the minimum wage was $1,05 an hour. So $42 for 40-hour's work in a week. After the rent, the food, the clothes, and the medical expenses (because the Health insurance was not still effective), there was not a lot of money to buy a hamburger in a restaurant, even less at $0,45 in the Exhibition.


And if you have more info which could give us an ideas of the prices of that time, do not hesitate to write me on my e-mail
