- The first class menu from the same day, for comparison http://imgur.com/b1fU968
- How fitting that the logo at the top looks a lot like a coin with a $ stamped on it.
- Gimme the coal shoveler's menu any day! You and your fancy European things!
- I'll take the Cold Meat Tea.
- There's a mistake. They forgot to list salad with iceberg lettuce.
- On the point about there being no "lunch" and why "tea" consists of cold meat, cheese, et cetera: http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/radio/specials/1535_questionanswer/page2.shtml Basically, back then "dinner" meant the most complete meal in the day. "Lunch" used to mean a light midday meal, "tea" meant a light evening meal, and "supper" is the light meal before the end of the day. It's an old timey British thing, apparently.
- Your getting there. There is a large divide in england (mainly north/south split) regarding which meal is dinner. In this case, as it is on a Sunday a traditional Sunday dinner is being served (hence the roast beef) and would be served at a late lunch time.
- I'm not sure if it's a Sunday thing, but it was interesting having been to a British family's home on Sunday afternoon for two meals after church, and lunch being so much more substantive than supper. Supper practically seemed like a snack to me.
- This is how my grandmother referred to meals in rural western Pennsylvania, breakfast, dinner and supper.
- It's more of a regional thing in Britain, still used today for lots of people.
