1948 Great White Throne Menu

The photo and text on this menu are nearly identical to that of a 1950 menu shown here previously. The only real difference is the 1950 menu shows a woman gazing at the scenery, while this one does not. Although the clouds are a little different, it is quite possible the two photos were taken on the same day. As with the Old Faithful menus, it is a curious puzzle why UP would publish slightly different views of the same subject when the West offered so many other stunning signs.

The menu itself gives no indication of what train this was for. It offers six table d’hôte breakfasts and three “special combination” breakfasts, down from eight and four in a pre-war menu.
