As the oldest Las Vegas, Nevada menu that has been digitized for this size, it provides more than just a snapshot of the prices in the early 1930s in Las Vegas, but who the opeator was, and what he was marketing, including the best coffee on earth, and no substitutes. wonderful piece of early LV history, thanks.
