Mount Assiniboine Dinner Menu

One more dinner menu from someone’s 1950 Alaska steamship journey. This one features a cover painting by Carl Rungius. Rungius was a German painter who immigrated to the United States in 1896 to specialize in wildlife art, then opened a studio in Banff in 1921.

This particular painting, of course, does not show wildlife, unless those brown spots in the distance are elk rather than more horses and riders. The inside front cover has photos of Lake Atlin in northern British Columbia and a fisherwoman toting a huge load of salmon or some similar fish.
