Canadian Ports served included Quebec, Montreal, St. Johns, and Halifax. US Ports included: Portland, Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore.
Vintage Second Cabin Daily Menu Card from 9 June 1906 on board the RMS Virginian of the Allan Line featured Beefsteak and Onions for Breakfast, Roast Goose, Apple Sauce for Dinner, and Preserved Salmon for Tea.
Rare Vintage Dinner Menu Card from Saturday, 20 July 1912 on board the TSS Scandinavian of the Allan Line featured Baked Cod - Butter Sauce, Roast Sirloin Of Beef - Horseradish, and Plum Pudding - Brandy Sauce for dessert.
Vintage Menus from the GG Archives collection are representative of the menus, typically printed on board each steamship during the voyage onto a blank pre-printed graphic cover. The bill of fares was intended as souvenirs of the journey and provided to each passenger for that class (First, Second, Third, Tourist, etc.). Many survive today as delightful displays of gourmet meals served in elegant dining saloons on the ocean liners of yesteryear.
