SEGURANCA: 1890 - Dinner menu from 1914

Product Description

Ward Line:  A rare dinner menu dated 13 April 1914 from the U.S.M.S. SEGURANCA.  

Selections on this long ago evening included Boiled Red Snapper, Vol-au-Vent Calves Brains, Roast Fresh Ham with Champagne Sauce, Pear Fritters, Peach Pudding, and Raisins.  On the menu cover is a photo of Ward Line flagship HAVANA (1907).  

But what of the U.S.M.S. SEGURANCA?  She was built in 1890 for the mostly-forgotten United States and Brazil Mail Steamship Company.  She proved too luxurious for the route and was soon laid up.  Ward Line bought her in ’93 for the New York-Havana-Vera Cruz route.  During the Spanish American War in 1898 she was chartered as a military transport.  Perhaps that’s why years later she still carried the United States Military Service designation.  At any rate, soon after this April 1914 dinner the SEGURANCA was sold to become a freighter.  An unfortunate meeting with a reef off Bermuda ended her service in 1918. 

Very good condition.
