1898 Vintage Menus

Vintage Menus for 1898 in the GG Archives collection represent the souvenir breakfast, luncheon, dinner, daily, private party, special occasion, and specialty menus provided to the passengers during their voyage.

Many of these souvenir menus have disappeared over the years. Our collection contains a sampling of menus initially produced and printed by the steamship lines.

They are often used to illustrate family history books for immigrants from this time. The menus are organized in date order.
