Great Northern 1930 Postcard Menu

When folded, this menu is about twice the size of a postcard, so one more fold allows the address space to appear and it is ready for mailing. The cover shows the Empire Builder, or possibly the Oriental Limited, in the Cascade Mountains. The back has a photo of Lake MacDonald Lodge, which Great Northern acquired in 1930.

Inside, the left side of the menu is a testament to Glacier Park wildflowers, while the unpriced menu on the right side was for a “Prairie Farmer Trip to Adventureland.” Adventure Land was part of the name of one of Grace Flandrau’s booklets written for the 1926 Historical Expedition. We’ve previously seen several Southern Pacific menus for a 1938 trip sponsored by Prairie Farmer magazine.
