OPA... Contains the 1943 WWII war-time rationing OPA Regulations Statement! OPA was the Office Of Price Administration that issued ration stamps and set maximum pricing allowed for restaurants so that over-inflated high prices would not occur during the war. Meat & other items were in very short supply. The OPA statement was printed on menus to show they were in compliance with the rationing regulations.

Date: 1940's.
Restaurant: Rio Cabana.
Location: The location is not stated, but since this came from a stack of New York menus, my guess is that it is from the Concord Hotel in New York.
Size when open: 12 x 18 inches, 12 inches tall.
