Rosie’s Place - THE place for lunch on Meeting Island is Luchow's. Originally broadcast Sept. 18, 1938.

B'onss sets up a washing machine powered by an airplane engine. And the usual wacky characters stop by Luchow's - like Nicholai Lopanearov, Rt. Hon. A. Cadbury Mouchoir, Cuthbert Calico and police Sargeant Brush.
