Description
Glass ashtray. The ashtray is square in shape, with convex edges. At each corner is a semicircular indentation, and in the center of the ashtray is a deep, round depression. On the bottom of the ashtray are decorative grooves stemming from the center, along the outer edge, and under the circular depression is a repeating, incised diamond pattern. Used for ash disposal at the Capitol Café. Capitol Café (1930-2007) The Capitol Café was established on the north side of Talbot Street East in 1930 and named after the Capitol Theatre that stood beside it. Johnny Jung took over the restaurant from his uncle Charlie Joong in 1965. Johnny Jung was born in Canton, China. Johnny and Jeannie Jung became the third owners of Chinese descent when they purchased the restaurant in 1965. They were open 365 days a year and their table jukeboxes were very popular with all their customers. Johnny took pride in the fact he never missed a day of business. The Capitol Café closed upon his retirement on May 31, 2007.
