RMS Parisian 1906
This breakfast menu is as plain as can be because it is dated 1906, before there was color printing/ before color printing was widely used. It does give us a fascinating insight into what cruise ship passengers ate more than a century ago – fried blue fish for starters and then steak and eggs or liver and bacon! The RMS Parisian was a luxury steamship that would later have a role in the sinking of the Titanic. On the night of the disaster in 1912, the Parisian was 50 miles southwest of the Titanic when she was struck. But the ship’s wireless operator was off duty and did not receive the Titanic’s appeal for aid. If it had, speculated the Philadelphia Inquirer at the time, it seems certain most of the passengers and crew would have been saved.
