Canadian National Railways Menu September 6,1939

Publisher: Canada, Canadian National Railways: 1939

Seller ID: 1119

Condition: Very Good


Very handsome 1939 menu for passengers on the Canadian National Railway September 6, 1939. This was a banner year for Canada with the arrival of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth who in May of '39 took a Royal Tour of the country stopping at both small towns and large cities to the delight of fervent crowds. To celebrate the Royal Tour the two Canadian railways -- the Canadian National and the Canadian Pacific --each worked hard to outdo the other in providing half the cars for the Royal Train. Of course by the time this menu was printed the hoopla was all over, but the cover shows The Nat... View more info

Fred Harvey Restaurant Menu 1945 (Aid to Military Ribbon Identification)

By: N/A

Price: $20.00

Publisher: Kansas, Fred Harvey Restaurants: 1945

Seller ID: 1505

Condition: Very good


Fred Harvey was a restaurant phenomenon. On this menu it sums up his amazing growth with this line, "from Cleveland to the Pacific coast." This particular menu was printed for the restaurant located in Union Station, Los Angeles and dated Monday, May 28, 1945. In addition to the patriotic cover it's interesting to see how much food has changed in America. Of course the prices are give-away by today's standards -- imagine a cocktail for 35 cents -- but you would rarely see such offerings as what Fred Harvey was serving up for lunch in '45. How about some braised smoked beef tongue with noodles... View more info

This is very pretty card which also tells much about the Summit Hotel on the reverse side. It was open only from April through November and offered its guests golf, tennis, saddle horses, miniature golf, dancing and "moving pictures." There were 100 rooms with running hot and cold water, steam heat, private baths and telephone. Among the celebrities who stayed there are President and Mrs. Harding, General Pershing, Thomas Edison, Henry and Edsel Ford, Cornelius and Reginald Vanderbilt and John Burroughs, author of many books on natural history.

Postcards New Orleans Spanish Arch Patio, Brulatour Courtyard, Broussard's Restaurant (1939-40's)

Publisher: New Orleans, LA, A. Hirschwitz; New Orleans News: 1939-1940's

Seller ID: 2079

Condition: Very Good condition


Three colorful, crisp linen postcards each showing a different New Orleans scene. The one featuring Broussard's Paradise Courtyard Restaurant is the most interesting not only because it has a dated postmark for 1939, but because it was hand written by J.C. Broussard who was engaged in a little marketing. The message reads "While in N.O. enjoy a delicious French meal at Broussard's famous reastaurant. J.C. Broussard." It was sent to Miss Harriet Stone of Wooster, Ohio. The other two cards (Spanish Arch Patio and Brulatour Courtyard) are likewise nice -- one has not been used, the other shows a... View more info

Condition: Very Good Condition


I've had this menu for awhile and tried many times to determine its origin, but I, still don't know. You would think that because they served an extensive list of Chinese food would have helped, but it didn't. The only clue I found was a message inside from "Danny" who took a page to enitce diners with the various types of Chinese cuisine --Mandarin, Hunan, Cantonese etc. The only reason I even know the date is because a previous owner wrote it (1974) on one of the pages. The restaurant created a showy full-page list of cocktails in addition to seven pages of entrees, appetizers and desserts... View more info

Publisher: Fred Harvey: 1920's

Seller ID: 2688

Condition: Very Good Condition


This card is unused, so no dates written by sender and no post mark. The only clue to find a date here is the pink cloche hat on the lady in the foreground next to the two men. The cloche hat is a Roaring Twenties fashion favorite. Fred Harvey was the restaurant king of his day. This one was beautiful and located in the Chicago train station. Card is clean and nice and will arrive in a brand new plastic sleeve. View more info

Seller ID: 2899

Condition: Fine condition for all


I just found this array of fun things in a travel collection I bought a couple years ago. Everything was in the envelope with the restaurant advertising. The envelope, the card, and business card came from the China Quanjude Group which introduced the roast duck seen in the photo in 1864, during the third year of Tongzhi, Quing Dynasty. There's also a Boarding Card from the China International Travel Service, a small advertising card which lists the Chinese Dyanasties and the items which can be bought at the store, and lastly, two very attractive Chinese characters on beautiful paper. . . ....

Price: $15.00

Publisher: Madrid, Spain, Ministerio De Informacion Y Turismo: No date

Seller ID: 3668

Condition: Very good condition


This is a very attractive travel brochure which shows off the many faces of Spain. There is no date and I could find no clues that would have at least dated it by decade.It's fairly contemporary -- from the 80's to the early 2000s. There's much to read about hotels, restaurants, museums, beauty sites, shopping, sports, festivals and other fun things. The brochure closes up to a handy 4-3/4" x 9-1/2 and opens to twice as big. Other than a few small isolated edge wear, the brochure is lovely. TEXT IS IN ENGLISH. View more info

Price: $18.00

Publisher: Montreal, Canada, Canadian Tourist Association: No date circa 1940's

Seller ID: 4093

Condition: Good condition


This travel guide has it all -- great hotels, restaurants, things to do, things to buy. It measures 7" x 8" and has 25 counted pages with brown printing and sepia photographs. It was tricky to figure out the date, but after several tries I got it -- a photo of Countess Nicol and her son (see photo) did it. The Countess and Count were Little People -- I remembered seeing that picture somewhere else. It was supposed to have been in the 1940's. I think that's about right because the fashions are 30's-40's and there is very nice photo of a tour bus. View more info

Edition: 7th printing

Seller ID: 3390

Condition: Fine, as New


I've sold several of these over the years, but never one in such perfect condition. Gorgeous is the word, so I added a mylar cover to keep it that way. The Golden Lamb in Lebanon Ohio is a storied place, its history, it's good times in a charming environment, and for some, even ghost stories. I'm not sure if the latter is in the book, but I read some first person "eeries" a couple years ago in the Medina Gazette which of course adds greatly to the fun, even though not everyone believes it.The book measures 6"x 8" and has 59 pages replete with facsimile documents and black and white photograph...
