This menu is for the last evening meal on a 1955 trip of the Princess Louise from Vancouver to Skagway, Alaska. The 1953 timetable indicates that this steamship sailed three times a month in May through September, stopping in Prince Rupert, Petersburg, Ketchikan, and Juneau on the trip north and the same cities except Wrangell in place of Petersburg on the trip south.
The menu is unpriced, so meals must have been included in the cost of the ticket. It offers a choice of entrées including chicken halibut cheeks (chicken halibut are halibut smaller than 20 pounds, so their cheeks must be very small), spring salad, spring chicken, loin steak, or ox tongue. The meal came with hors d’oeuvres, iced grapefruit, soup, potatoes croquette, asparagus tips, dessert, coffee, and dinner mints.
