Before that fateful night when the RMS Titanic plunged to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, guests were served grilled mutton chops and custard pudding for lunch.
The first-class passengers’ menu of the Titanic’s last lunch sold for $122,000 at an auction in London yesterday, according to the New York Post.
There are more than 40 options on the multi-course menu, which came from the table of Titanic passenger Dr. Washington Dodge. Dodge was a banker travelling first class from San Francisco with his wife, Ruth, and son, Washington Jr.
Mrs. Dodge slipped the menu into her purse as a souvenir, unaware of how the evening would end. The entire family survived the accident, and the menu had stayed in the family until yesterday’s auction at Henry Aldridge and Son,
The 100th anniversary of the ship’s sinking is later this month.
