A lunch menu from the Titanic's final day afloat is expected to fetch about $150,000 when it goes up for auction in England next month, reports the Telegraph. The menu came from a first-class table: The wife of San Francisco banker Washington Dodge tucked it into her purse at lunch, and she ended up being one of the survivors who made it onto a lifeboat later.
''The menu carries the all-important date of April 14 and gives the reader a fascinating insight into the culinary life of Titanic's elite passengers," says a spokesman for auctioneer Henry Aldridge & Son. Those tastes included eggs Argenteuil, consomme fermier, chicken a la Maryland, galantine of chicken, and grilled mutton chops. (Read more Titanic stories.)
