It's Wednesday, so "What's in the Attic with Jim?"
We remember today December 7, 1941 as Pearl Harbor day. Jim found this menu from the Hotel Queen Anne from two years later, Christmas 1943. We were still in the midst of World War. You can see the salute to the troops in the embossed cover with the eagle and the shield.
