This is a page of Age of Stone and as highly improbable as this combat is, a more realistic combat in Hideouts & Hoodlums likely would have ended with this cavewoman crushed to death by this cave bear! Cave bears are mentioned in Book II: Mobsters & Trophies, as having more Hit Dice than brown bears.
No, that price in the window isn't a joke. I reviewed old menus from the 1940s (like on sites like this one) and found that there were diners circa 1940 where you could get a nice dinner for a dollar.
This page of Natural History meshes well with H&H, in that Book II featured a fair assortment of prehistoric mammals for the game (and dinosaurs were largely left for the supplements). Though informative, I still don't particularly feel that prehistoric horses need to be statted for the game.
