Post-Centennial Lunch Menu

After 1969, the Union Pacific went back to its photo menus for most meals, but–perhaps using up leftover stock–continued to use Fogg menus from time to time. Here is a 1971 lunch menu featuring a painting of a steamboat used to ferry cars across the Missouri River until construction of the bridge in the background is completed.

Despite raging inflation–a 1971 dollar was worth only about 90 percent of a 1969 dollar–the menu prices are the same as the 1969 lunch menu. The only difference I can see is that a Spanish omelet has replaced the roast turkey meal. Personally, I prefer the turkey.
