vintage thanksgiving menus



From the early 1900’s
These sweet vintage menus offer great insight to how our past generations celebrated Thanksgiving. Some traditional menu items haven’t changed much, but there are some sort of old-school goodies that one keeps seeing on these old menus, like french peas, mincemeat pie, oyster dressing, olives and turtle soup! Hmmm, interesting! What’s your favorite Thanksgiving menu fare?
