Menu from Titanic`s last lunch at British auction

The menu, kept by a prominent San Francisco banker, bears the date April 14, the day in 1912 when the ship sank.



London: British auctioneers are offering a
first class menu from the Titanic`s last lunch, an item they
claim offers a unique window on the doomed ship`s Edwardian
splendor.

The menu, kept by a prominent San Francisco banker, bears
the date April 14, the day in 1912 that the reputedly
unsinkable cruiser hit an iceberg and fell to the bottom of
the Atlantic.

Devizes, England-based auctioneer Henry Aldrige & Son say
that the menu is one of the "rarest items of Titanic
memorabilia to be sold in recent years" and expects it to
fetch up to 100,000 pounds (about USD 160,000) when it`s
offered later today.

Among the 40 options on the historic menu: Chicken a la
Maryland and Consomme Fermier.
