This menu cover displays the newly renamed Mount Eisenhower, formerly known as Castle Mountain. The older name would be restored in 1979, either because people were forgetting about World War II or because they hadn’t forgotten their anger when the Canadian government had changed the name without consulting the public.
Dated September 3, 1949, this menu’s table d’hôte side offers a choice of scallops, omelette chasseur, pork chop, curried chicken, duck, and three cold plates. All of these were $3 (nearly $32 Canadian today) including appetizers, salad, vegetables, dessert, and beverage. The a la carte side has scallops, salmon, lobster, sole, chicken Provencale, beef tenderloin, breast of capon, duck, eggs benedict, and four cold plates. The lobster, chicken, and duck were $2; the others were less.
