I don't know what to make of this 1881 New Haven "chopped beef sandwich"--about a generation before the hamburger was invented in New Haven at Louis' Lunch (1900), of course.
19 July 1881, New Haven (CT) <i>Evening Register</i>, pg. 1:
They permitted this, and he astonished Crump, the steward, with an order for beefsteak, poached egg and a chopped beef sandwich.
