Titanic menu to be auctioned

From the New York Daily News

A rate postcard menu from a second class restaurant on the Titanic is expected to fetch a staggering 135000 greenbacks.

The carte details the breakfast on offer on Thurs. Apr. 11, 1912 - just three days before the ill-fated liner struck an iceberg and sank.

On the flip-side, saloon steward Jacob Gibbon had written "Good voyage up to now" to his girlfriend - Miss L Payne - who was living in Studland Bay, Dorset, England.

He posted the card after the ship stopped at Queenstown, Cork, Ireland, which has since been renamed Cobh.
