5 Political Menus from the Franklin D. Roosevelt era - 5 menus from the FDR era. 

Many Railroads printed special "one time" event menus. This group is all related to train trips taken by FDR. Unless stated otherwise all menus were issued by the New York Central Railroad. The group includes: 

(1) Midnight Lunch - Hyde Park, New York to Washington D.C. 6" by 10 1/2" single sided cardstock with pencil date of 11/6/40. Nice Hudson valley views on top 

(2) Midnight Lunch 6 1/2" by 9 3/4" cardstock with textured inner sheet nice tassel, color NYCS stamp on reverse 

(3) Pennsylvania RR Breakfast 7" by 8 1/4" Kingston Ontario & Return Aug 17-19 1938, single fold 

(4) Pennsylvania RR Breakfast 7" by 8 1/4" Washington D.C. to Hyde Park 

(5) Pennsylvania RR Breakfast 7" by 8 1/4" Washington D.C. to Hyde Park

All of the menus we are offering in this auction have a slight bend from sloppy storage. With a stack of heavy books and a little time, they can be flattened out.
