“The Mounted” Menu

This menu wasn’t actually used by the Canadian Pacific, but “was furnished by ‘Canadian Pacific,’ the world’s greatest transportation system,” to the Royal City Stamp Club for use at the 1961 banquet of the Northwest Federation of Stamp Clubs. The meeting took place in Centennial Lodge of Queens Park in New Weestminster, British Columbia.

The menu was hardly necessary as everyone got the same dinner of crab cocktail, barbecued chicken, whipped potatoes, vegetables, strawberry shortcake, and tea or coffee. The menu cover shows an unmounted member of the Mounted Police on the steps of the Parliament Building in Ottawa, a long way from New Westminster.
