Uranium Burger, 1954

Around 1950, there was a bit of another “gold rush” out west, thanks to the advent of nuclear weapons. But, replace “gold” with “uranium.” Silly sidelights of penny uranium stock boom in Salt Lake City include a uranium burger which is really just a nonradioactive hamburger.

Here, the uranium burger was served in a shop in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1954. The sandwich is so named for the region’s booming uranium industry.
