Hot Springs, S.D. the hotel, 1905.
Bi-fold menu (14 x 9 cm.),  pages. Printed in brown. Illustrated. Printed menu for the resort hotel in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The hotel featured golf, tennis, swimming, shooting, pine forests, and "sunshiny weather'. The front panel of the menu contains a photographic illustration of the five-story hotel, which looks a bit like an armory or a prison. The Sunday evening meal included a musical programme by the Evans Orchestra and some appealing menu items including Chicken with Orka, Broiled Columbia River Salmon, Roast Spring Duck with Walnut Dressing and a Russian Marmalade, Chocolate Ice Cream, and Saratoga Wafers. The photograph of the hotel may have been taken by W.R. Cross, a Hot Springs-based photographer based in who photographed scenes in the Dakotas. Some light soil to the tan pages of the menu. Still, near very good.
