I’m currently reading a novel written and set in the US in late 40s. I should probably say 1940s in case someone reads this in 30 years time.
There’s a reference to someone living in a flat. Not an apartment, a flat.
The main character also, on one occasion, dined on fish and chips. Not fries.
I found it interesting.
I’m not finished the book yet, so who knows what remains to be discovered.
