Default Historical Menus

The New York Public Library has a collection of old menus you can view at
http://menus.nypl.org/dishes/22744

Here is one from 1882 with prices:


Jas. H. Breslin & Bros Hotels 1882

On the Wine List page:

Ales, Porter, &c.

Zoedone .40

On other menus I find things like "Bass & Co. White Label"
or "Bass & Co. Dog's Head", "George Ehret's "Extra" Beer"
"Ruppert's Knickerbocker"....a lost world!

And found a picture of the Ehret beer here:
