Ghosts of Vintage Menus Past

This is a menu from my Uncle Joe’s amazing vintage menu collection that he began when he was just a boy, growing up in Glen Ridge, NJ.  When I saw the menus in the New York Public Library’s Digital Archives, it made me think of him.  I just love how these menus give us a glimpse into what was popular among the “Foodies” of their day.
