San Francisco: [circa 1870-1938].
Convolute of various ephemeral pieces produced by San Francisco's first French restaurant, originally opened in 1849. The pieces include menus, postcards, wine lists, business cards, and labels for various proprietary wines and liquors. More than fifty different pieces in all. A few of the pieces are for Camille's Restaurant, which was run by Camille Mailhebau - one of the Poodle Dog's owners - after the Poodle Dog closed in 1922, a victim of Prohibition. The menus and wine lists are rich with detail, and include menus for private functions and celebratory holiday dinners. Overall condition is very good to fine.
