A Delicious Northern Pacific Breakfast


From our collection of Railroad Memorabilia ....

A postcard issued by the Northern Pacific Railroad in April, 1936. They were probably handed out in the dining car and patrons were encouraged to "Mail to a friend at home".  Chilled cantaloupe, "N.P. Little Pig" sausages, hot griddle cakes, maple syrup, and a pot of coffee ... all for 75 cents. Now THAT was back when a dollar was a dollar!  If we can believe the code printed on the card, five thousand were printed in April, 1936. Wonder how many are still out there?

Thanks for stopping by John's Island.

  3. John, what a fabulous collection of memorablilia you have! It's always fun to take a look at such items. Wow, only 75 cents for that hearty breakfast. Things were certainly different back in 1936.

    I must thank you for the kind and generous comments your left on my recent blog post. You are such a gracious, warm-hearted, thoughtful, talented individual. Meeting wonderful people like you through social media makes it all worthwhile.

    I hope your holiday was warm and special. Wishing you a healthy, happy New Year filled with great joy!
