Description Menu: Lackawanna Luncheon Menu; from the Lackawanna Restaurant, Lackawanna Terminal, Hoboken, no date, ca. 1924-1935.

Only the right leaf, 5-7/8" wide x 9-3/8" high, of what was originally a folio. Adhesive stains at corners from mounting.

The reverse is an advertisement for the Hoboken Ferry with a capsule history and two photos of the ferry plus a quote from British Prime Minister James Ramsey MacDonald about the Manhattan skyline. Since the reference to him is in the present tense and he served as P.M. in 1924 and again from 1929-35, it helps to date this item to one of those years. Typefaces suggest the 1930s rather than the 1920s.

One photo is of a drawing of "team boats" representing the ferry in the early 19th C. The other photo is of the "Binghamton."
