The lettering and graphic on these aprons are faithfully recreated from original signs displayed throughout New England diners in the 1950s. The color is thought to be a humorous reference to the so-called "blue laws," dating back to the 17th century when the Puritans tried to enforce proper behavior and standards in their communities. The signs, offering home-cooked dishes or an establishment's attitude toward credit, are amusing reminders of a bygone era of casual dining out.
