Forget the first class meals served aboard the S.M.S Titanic, a single menu from the doomed voyage is going up for auction and it’s likely to bring in upwards of $150,000.
Dated April 15 1912 the menu was offered to first-class passengers on the last day aboard the cruise ship. This particular menu was on the table of passenger Dr. Washington Dodge, a San Francisco banker who was traveling with his son Washington Junior and his wife Ruth Dodge.
Among the 40 different menu options were eggs Argenteuil, consomme fermier, galantine chicken and mutton chops.
The menu was only saved because Ruth Dodge slipped it into her handbag that same day, unaware that the cruise ship was about to sink only hours later.
After fleeing from the ship Mrs. Dodge and her son survived the sinking of the Titanic and the S.M.S. Titanic menu stayed in the family until this very day.
Do you think a single first-class lunch menu from the Titanic is worth upwards of $150,000?
