Hard to find original 1946 menu with the WWII era OPA war-time rationing statement, from The London Chop House, 155 West Congress Street, Detroit, Michigan. When open, the size is 13x18 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. Fold mark across the middle. Some edge tears.

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.
