City of Los Angeles Lunch Menu

The Los Angeles train terminal, the last major train station built in the United States, is featured on the cover of this heavily edited lunch menu. The menu itself looks like it was being modified for future editions: one of the major “luncheon suggestions” is changed from “fresh shrimp Louis” to “chopped smoked ham with scrambled eggs,” and “hot or cold” is scratched out wherever it is used by “coffee” or “tea.”

At the top of the menu, someone has written “rush today” and “800/Job 1381.” So it appears that the commissary has ordered some minor changes to the standard lunch menu.
