Bennie and Clovis Martin were ex-streetcar conductors who opened a hole-in-the-wall coffee stand in New Orleans’ French Quarter in 1922. According to many accounts, it was the Martin brothers who created the world famous po-boy sandwich in an effort to support the striking streetcar drivers and conductors in 1929. Bennie and Clovis split up the business in the late 1930s. This breakfast menu from the 1940s is from a Gentilly Highway outlet.
