Hotel New Yorker "Arms", New York, 1942
Completed in 1929, the Hotel New Yorker boasted 2,500 rooms within its 43 stories and was, in that era, the tallest and most mechanized hotel in the world. It also had its own print shop that produced classic menus like this four-part series from 1942, the year after the attack on Pearl Harbor that brought America into the Second World War. In striking colors, these menu covers proudly declared that America "rallies its resources in times of need." Click through to see the other menu covers. They are reproduced as a collection of four on one poster or can be bought separately.
