1957 Denver City Park Breakfast Menu

Denver’s unimaginatively named City Park dates back to 1880 and is 330 acres in size. It includes the Denver Zoo and the Museum of Nature and Science (which has dioramas painted by the painter whose work was also featured on at least one Santa Fe menu). As shown in the 2011 photo below, Denver’s skyline has changed quite a bit since the menu photo was taken, but the park scene has not.

Like the previous two menus, this one was apparently issued by the Milwaukee Road commissary, though it is dated May, 1957 instead of February. In addition to numerous a la carte items, it features seven breakfast meals ranging in price from $1.20 to $1.90.
