Wolfie's Cocoa Beach, Cape Kennedy, Florida, 1960s
In the 1960s, space exploration was in full swing. Several American astronauts including John Glenn had already orbited the earth. When President John F. Kennedy, who supported the goal of landing humans on the moon, was assassinated in 1963, Cape Canaveral was renamed Cape Kennedy in his honor. This children's menu, which could be turned into an astronaut mask, came from the popular Wolfie's restaurant in Cocoa Beach, Florida. Many little boys and girls were allowed to take them home, but only if they cleaned their plates first. In 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon and in the 1970s, as the name change had not been popular in Florida, the original 400-year-old Cape Canaveral name was restored.
