Have you been watching the new hit series Pan Am? It's on late Sunday evenings around here and I've managed to see the first two episodes. I love it. It's fairly well done in the wardrobe department. The sets look authentic. And I must say, I'd rather watch that that most of what is available on our TV these days.
I was so excited today when I found this menu postcard from Pan Am, dated 1952. It's "on Board the President, Blue Ribbon Transatlantic Flight". The President was Pan Am's first class service. I was amazed to learn that Pan Am had a relationship with Maxims where they would supply most of the first class food, flash frozen. Oh la la. And check out the wine being offered, a Chateau Gloria 1947.
What makes this so special though, is the writing on the postcard and around the menu.
Dear Doc & Alice,
Landing in Karachi in about an hour. Trip ok good as can be expected with two little ones, but they were "good little ones". Can I even thank you people enough- Hope they put a stamp on this for Doc. Love Penny.
Then around the menu it reads:
Debby first looked at this and decided we were having "Lamb chops & milk for lunch.
It's all fun. I've put it up on EBAY, we'll see if it goes.
There's a fun site dedicated to Everything Pan Am. Worth a visit! At least check out the show.
