Mesa Verde Breakfast Menu

We’ve already seen a 1941 dinner menu with this cover. Today’s menu, which is dated July 12, 1940, has a similar, but not quite identical, menu as yesterday’s breakfast menu.

Unlike the somewhat hokey legend that appeared on yesterday’s menu, the back cover of the Mesa Verde menu has a believable, if slightly romanticized, description of the discovery of the famous cliff dwellings. The Rio Grande had something of a monopoly, at least among the railroads, on access to Mesa Verde National Park.
