Menus are fascinating because they really don’t discriminate. No matter where we are from or who we are, we have all picked up a menu to select something to eat at one time or another. Not only are vintage menus adorned with beautiful drawings and typefaces, but they showcase the foods of former eras. Did Abe Lincoln have the oyster stew? Did John Jacob Astor IV enjoy his Pâté de foie gras before he went down with the Titanic? Menu’s weren’t historically thought of as keepsakes, so they can be hard to dig up, but we found a few.
And finally, a different kind of menu… with love for Mr. Mark Twain.
