Eater's Digest 1945 Kitchen Towel
This gastronomical journey through the USA is packed with wonderful culinary details. This was a menu cover that showed how America was nearly self-sufficient in the food it grew and raised. Only a few items such as tea, coffee and pineapples from Hawaii, which was still a territory at that time, were imported.

Our collection of menus from all over the world dates from the late 19th century through the 1970s. Our favorite period is from the years 1930–1960. This was a boom time when proprietors hired celebrated artists and highly talented illustrators to create stunning imagery to market their restaurants and themselves. It was a time when fish smoked pipes and cigars. Prawns and cockroaches wore top hats and spats. Voluptuous brunettes sat astride lobsters and devil like women drained their cocktail glasses in New York bars.
