americanantiquarianToday is Flag Day in the United States! Here is an 1898 dinner invitation from a Society event which sports an embossed and color printed American flag. The meal included salmon, lamb, larded sweetbreads (ugh), as well as bananas glacé and strawberry short cake. #raiseitup #flags #flagday
- karen_in_va@americanantiquarian .. Old menus are tops in my ephemera collection .. The names of dishes are fascinating
- americanantiquarianThanks @karen_in_va ! We have a large collection of nineteenth-century menus at AAS. There is also a wonderful online resource @nypl called "What's on the Menu." Great fun to just look through! http://menus.nypl.org
