1949 Chateau Lake Louise Lunch Menu

Dated August 27, 1949, this menu has the same exterior format as the Banff Springs Hotel menus dated two days later. The interior seems cheerier and more informal than the Banff menus, but a close examination reveals the main difference is that the type is in an aqua or cyan color rather than black.

The menu says it was used in the Lake-View Room. I’m not sure if this is what is now known as the Lakeview Lounge or the Fairview Dining Room.

  1. Some Canadian sardines, a ham slice with a baked banana, mashed turnips, and Cream of Wheat pudding – what more could any red-blooded Canadian want for lunch? No trout on the menu, and that tomato soup still took 10 minutes to get to you. No hamburger for Junior either. He’ll just have to be happy with some pickled ox tongue and rhubarb chard.

    It’s all coming back to me why I didn’t much like those vacations with Mom and Dad. 🙂
