My good friend Dave Fisher is a former military person. He knows I love this sort of ephemera, so he recently gave me the original menu from his Thanksgiving dinner at the Presidio from November 1941.
Here are a few pages from it. It’s in like new condition. Dave himself is in slightly used condition, but quite serviceable. 🙂 You can find his name on the directory page.
How many of us know what we had for Thanksgiving dinner 72 years ago? And just two weeks before the war started!
