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.
