Swiftcurrent Valley Menu

One more Glacier Park menu from the New York Public Library. Like yesterday’s, this one is from 1946 and has the lower prices ($1.25 for “plate dinner number one”). Curiously, the number of entrĂ©es in the number one plate dinner has dwindled from five in 1941 to four in 1943 to just three in 1946.

The bear grass on the cover of this menu could be anywhere in the northern Rockies, but the photo caption says it was in Swiftcurrent Valley, meaning close to the Many Glacier Hotel. There is a hint of mountainside in the background on the right, but I don’t recognize it so I’ll have to take the caption’s word for it.
