Frisco Breakfast Menu

This menu from the collection of a former railway executive has a code, “B-42.” The B stands for breakfast but the number does not stand for 1942; the collector of this menu, who is generously sharing it with Streamliner Memories, says it is from 1963.

The menu offered several combinations of eggs with bacon or ham; griddle cakes; and hot or cold cereal. The most expensive item was smoked sugar-cured ham with two eggs for $1.90, about $22 in today’s money. A simple breakfast of orange juice and a bowl of cereal was 90 cents, or more than $10 today.
