1959 Rose Garden Dinner Menu

Another cover photo we’ve seen before on a 1960 dinner menu. Having grown up in Portland and visited the Rose Garden (located in Washington Park just west of downtown) many times, I find this to be one of my favorite menu covers.

This menu itself is pretty similar to yesterday’s, though prices have gone up slightly from $1.20 to $1.25 for basic breakfast of fruit, cereal, bread, and beverage and from $1.90 to $2.00 for ham, bacon, or sausage with two eggs. It doesn’t say “CMStP&P” so it was presumably issued by a Union Pacific commissary rather than a Milwaukee Road one.
