Hard to find original 1940's patriotic cover war time era menu from Jack Lynch's Hotel Walton Roof Garden Restaurant Night Club in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Apparently this place was repeatedly cited for violations such as liquor being sold on Sundays, presenting entertainment after legal closing hours, and selling liquor to intoxicated persons. Sounds like it was a great party place! When open, the size is 11x17 inches. Most of our menus were actually used in the restaurant, so there may be writing, wear and tear, spots, stains, crinkles and creases, etc., so please examine the images closely. Folded down & across the middle. inventory# b26-5.
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.
