Coffin Menu, 1907

Great coffin-styled menu, via the New York Public Digital Library website. The menu is part of the vast "Ms. Frank E. Buttolph Collection of Menus" and its caption reads: "First annual convention banquet held by Theta Nu Epsilon [a chapter of Skull and Bones] at Hotel Astor, New York, New York." The notes elaborate: "Wines listed; Menu in French; Toasts listed; Lyrics to drinking song on back."
