United States Line: SS Leviathan TC Breakfast and Luncheon Menu card August 11 1929.

The thrifty Chapman interests that owned the USL at this time combined breakfast and lunch menus for these meals in August 1929. These selections sound tastee… but certainly would not rival what was offered to those in First class. Though some warnings were being issued for stock market investors at this time … the great crash was still about 2 months away from the time this menu was printed. Interesting trident and USL houseflag detailing. Good condition with yellowing and some edge bumps.
