Lake Louise 1938 Breakfast Menu

This menu was used on the Dominion, Canadian Pacific’s premiere train at the time. The cover painting was by Marius Hubert Robert (1885-1966), a French artist famous enough to have his biography on the French wikipedia, but not famous enough to be on the English version.

The menu offers breakfast meals for 50 cents, 75 cents, or a dollar (multiply by 17.5 to get today’s money). Each has a choice of appetizers, breads, and beverages, while the two more expensive meals also have entrĂ©es ranging from scrambled eggs or fish cakes with the 75-cent meal to salmon or lamb chops with the $1 meal.
