What a find to stumble upon this beautiful 1880 menu from the famous Masconomo House in Manchester-by-the-Sea Massachusetts. I am on the board at the Manchester-by-the-Sea Historical Museum, and coincidentally, the theme of our annual meeting and party tomorrow evening is "an evening at the Masconomo House", recreating a theatrical performance from that era with live music, etc. Could someone please let me know whether we could obtain a copy of this menu for our archive collection? Thank you in advance for your help, and what a wonderful treasure trove of historical menus you have put together! Thank you! Beth Davis, Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts.
