Oxford Street, London. Frascati's London's Floral Restaurant. No date. Ca. 1930.
Ribbon-bound menu, 11 x 7 1/2 inches, with tipped-in front cover photo of the Winter Garden Restaurant within the Frascati premises. Four pages of text wax lyrical regarding the glories of the restaurant. "Frascati's! Whisper that name in the ears of a million exiles--and what a gleam will kindle in the tired eyes, what a yearning become urgent in home-sick hearts!" The menu's four page text is descriptive only--no listing of food or drink is offered. Presumably a substantial (and constantly changing) insert would provide listings relating to these provisions. Menu has small spot at top of front page and an area of light spotting on rear cover. Tipped-in photo image on front cover has 1/2 inch tear in upper left corner and light crease (barely noticeable) starting at this flaw and extending to photo's bottom edge. A small illustration showing traffic and pedestrians on the first page suggests, based on clothing and vehicular traffic, a circa 1930 date. An uncommon ephemeral item, with issues noted. Item #54224
