San Francisco, Cal. 1937.
Bi-fold menu bound with cord and mounted on wrapper, as issued (22.5 x 29 cm.),  pages. Illustrated by Wyman Taylor (1890-1972). Banquet menu for a dinner honoring Bert Walker, President of the San Francisco Rotary Club. The fanciful menu purports to be a radio broadcast "being broadcast over station B.U.R.P. in the Owl Room of the Bohemian Club. The sound effects are all genuine..." The illustrations depict one of the celebrateés reading the text of the radio show into a microphone surrounded by the still relatively sober partygoers. In the second illustration, the same men are in significantly worse shape, wheeling another home in a wheelbarrow. The menu includes a drinks list, presumably in order of service, with the text - from "Gibson and Old Fashioned Cocktails" to "Assorted Liqueurs" - written in progressively shakier handwriting. A bit of a water stain down the right hand side of the menu and some light soiling; still generally very good. Signed by ten of the attendees, including the honoree Bert Walker, George Whitney, Dave Moar, Johnny Crowe, Harry A. Mitchell and others.
