Children's Menu. A rather scary bear from the Goldilocks fable adorns the cover of this Union Pacific Children's menu. The menu is undated but probably goes back to the 1930s-1940s. This was an era when railroads maintained high standards of railroad dining car service and were willing to commission special artwork for younger travellers. Click the image for a larger version; click here to see the interior of the menu where a bowl of cereal or an egg costs 15 cents! See past featured Items.
