A lovely photo showing the QE settling into her new retirement home in PE, Florida. As we know the expectations on this being successful did not materialize and she would be sold again to CY Tung.

The culinary delights for this menu dated April 6th 1938 were sumptuous .. there were over 15 courses and sections to choose from … I would have just dove into the sweets and desserts and skipped the rest. The “block print” of the Galleon on the cover is well done in browns, reds and ochers.
