Other than her Maiden voyage ... the Rio Cruise of the Normandie was probably her most interesting and publicized voyage. This is a huge chapel "knight" oversized menu from Washington's birthday Feb 22nd 1939. There were not many months of peacetime left in the world at this point...WW2 was looming on the horizon. I am sure all that seems distant to most of the folks onboard as they celebrated and enjoyed certainly one of the best designed liners of all time. There is a little fading/discoloration noted to the edge of this menu. Full of delicious eats! Should be pressed flat in a book ... does have a little wave to it .. but still rare and lovely!
