The Automat

I remember the Automat which was made popular in the US by Horn & Hardart. The first one was opened in 1902 in Philadelphia. You put money in a slot in front of a piece of food, then opened the door and took out the food. The Automats are gone but the silverware is available as antiques.

This is my fork and spoon from Horn & Hardart
