RE: Earl of Sandwich
This thread surprised me when it appeared.....back in 1977-78, there was a restaurant named "The Earl of Sandwich" on Hilton Head Island and it was a good place to eat. It was the only one I'd ever heard of so doubt very much that it was a chain way back then. It disappeared over the next few years but evidently someone, somewhere, reinvented the name for a restaurant.
Just a bit of trivia. Maybe not very interesting but trivia nonetheless. Just another case of my living in the past.
