Temple Square, which the Union Pacific notes is “usually of chief interest to the visitor in Salt Lake City,” features the Mormon Temple and Mormon Tabernacle. Considering that it was built in the 1860s, the Tabernacle is remarkable for its elliptical, timber-framed (meaning built with pegs, not nails) dome whose interior can seat 8,000 people.
Although this menu has the same April, 1971 date as yesterday’s, the table d’hôte offerings are salmon, chicken, and beef, rather than trout, turkey, and veal. They also come with whipped, not baked, potatoes. The price of the salmon has increased by a nickel, to $3.95 (about $23 today), from the July, 1970, Jackson Lake menu, which offered salmon, turkey, or ham.
