Titanic's final lunch menu to be auctioned

alt 

A menu of the last lunch served to first-class passengers onboard the Titanic is expected to sell for $157,960 at a UK auction.


The menu, which records the last lunch served to first-class passengers before the Titanic hit an ice floe and sank, is dated April 14, 1912.


It was on the table of Dr. Washington Dodge, a banker traveling first class from San Francisco, accompanied by his wife, Ruth, and son, Washington Jr

Their last lunch featured several courses, including egg, chicken, beef, grilled mutton chops, desserts and a selection of eight cheeses.


Ruth Dodge took the menu as a souvenir, placing it in her handbag. The relic has remained with the family ever since they survived the tragedy.


The menu will be sold by Henry Aldridge & Son in Devizes, Wiltshire, on March 31.
