    This is a Flea Market find, from 2 weeks ago on 7/7/2018, it's a Ships Menu from the S.S. Monterey dated February 5, 1939.
    The Menu cover has a great Art Deco image of a Ukulele, and Flowers in a Starlit Sky, with ALOHA in the upper right corner. On the inside of the cover, it reads:
    * ALOHA * then, ALOHA . . . a word the world has borrowed from Hawaii, because no other in any tongue can quite convey it's meaning. Farewell without finality . . . good wishes as well as goodbye. A gay and friendly note on which to bring a span of your voyage to an end . . . for every repetition carries this cordial afterthought "Until we meet again"
    The inside page, is the Menu and reads S. S. M O N T E R E Y over AT SEA > > > EN ROUTE TO HONOLULU over Sunday, February 5, 1939 then the menu:
    Salted Nuts Hearts of Celery Queen Olives * Fresh Hawaiian Pineapple Cocktail, Maraschino * Consomme in Cup * Brook Trout Saute' with Almonds Cucumbers in Brown Butter * Fillet Mignon with Fresh Mushrooms New Peas Parisienne Potatoes * Royal Punch * Roast Squab Chicken Fresh Asparagus, Hollandaise * Hearts of Romain with Tomatoes, Alligator Pears * Frozen Delight Assorted Dainties * Coffee French Candies

    The first photo is the Menu cover, then inside cover, then Menu page, and the last is from Wikipedia the S.S. Monterey.
    The Cruise Ship was owned by Matson Lines, built in 1932 at Bethlehem Ship Yard, with the maiden voyage in 1932 from San Francisco, California to Honolulu, Hawaii, to promote travel cruises to Hawaii, and the South Seas. The Ship was put into Service after the Bombing of Pearl Harbor for Troop Transport, after WWII it went through several name changes, and in 2000, it sunk 50 miles off the Coast of South Africa, after taking on water, while under tow.

    Thank you for looking, I'll post a link to the S.S. Monterey, on Wikipedia in comments, for more information, all comments are welcome! :^)

      It's very interesting information about this Cruise Ship that was in service for almost 70 years. Thank you for looking! :^)

      Bill, this post has my heart. Our fave vacation place is Hawaii, and this Matson ship menu is a wonderful find - imagine those glorious days of luxury liner travel & great meals

      Looks like it was a fine ship. Hopefully the marine life is enjoying it now.

      Oh Jenni, you must have posted, at the same time that I thanked you for the love, I hit submit and left for the UPS store, and then dinner! I'm so happy that you love this, it's the way I felt when I saw it too, and had to get it! :^D We only went there once in 1985, but I wear my Hawaiian Shirts every day of the year, for the last 8yrs of retirement, my perpetual Hawaiian Vacation, if only in my mind! &:^D
      The S.S. Monterey really was a Luxury Cruise Ship too, and it surprised me to find out that it was mothballed in Suisun Bay, that's just southwest of me on the Sacramento/San Joaquin River. There are only a few of the 100's of Ships that were mothballed there, after WWII. Thank you so much for your very nice comment Jenny! :^)

      The colors are so vivid on it Thomas, like it had just been printed on the day, that the meal was served over 86yrs ago. It must have been laid flat in a draw, nearly all that time! :^D Thanks for your comment, and the love! :^)
    11. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 3 years ago
      Yeah Brian, 50mi. off the South African Coast, and know telling where the current took it on it's way to the bottom, I wonder if they got paid, from an insurance company? No salvage there, but the sea life, are dancing on the decks! :^D Thanks for the comment!
      Thank you for the love too! :^)

      My mother was an Army nurse on the SS Monterey during 1946. I was fortunate enough to have a dinner menu for 28 March 1946, and a church bulletin for Mother's Day which was 12 May 1946. Thanks for letting me share!
