Hard to believe that any of these still exist, especially in this condition. And I have two of them. This listing however is for only one. There are no rips, tears, or writing inside. The menu has 12 pages including the covers.
The menu/brochure consists of:
-The front cover shows a field of berries and the front of Knott's Berry Farm. The back cover is set up so it can be mailed. The stamp area says "Place 2 cent stamp here".
-A time line for Knott's Berry Farm beginning with 1920
-A message from Cordelia Knott (Mrs. Walter Knott)
-A message from Walter Knott
-Photos of several of the shops onsite (The Market, Virginia's Gift Shop, The Sport Shop)
-A listing of record days at the restaurant
-The menu (described below)
-A few pages showing parts of the park
-The location map
About the menu page.
You could get a Southern Fried Chicken dinner with salad, potatoes and gravy, vegetables, hot biscuits, jam, home-made pickles, your drink, and your choice of desert. for the whopping price of $2. Children's dinners are priced at $1. If you just wanted a piece of fresh boysenberry pie, it was .15 cents and a cup of coffee was .05 cents.
I'm using the date of 1951 for this menu for a few reasons. One is that on the 'record days" log, the last entry is for 1950, the cars on the front cover are from the 1940s, and the telephone numbers listed are 'Anaheim 2291" and 'Buena Park 307'. Those types of phone numbers were phased out in the very early 1950s.
So, there ya have it. A marvelous piece of Knott's Berry Farm history and in really great condition.
Buyer to pay delivery charges from Nevada of $5.99.
SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT POSSIBLE PARTIAL REFUND OF SHIPPING CHARGES:
Every January the postal service increases shipping charges. Previously, shipping charges were based solely on weight and zip code. This year the postal service went a bit overboard. Now, with this year's increase, the postal service has divided the United States in to 8 zones and all packages are charged by weight, size, and destination zone. This latest increase has added an additional .96 cents to up to $2.83 on packages, depending on their destination. I try to absorb some of the new charges and haven't increased my shipping charges in several years, but that's getting harder with each increase.
To complicate things even further, Google will not promote or show items for sale unless they have a designated cost, or unless the seller uses calculated shipping. My web host is not equipped to figure calculated shipping, so I have to quote a shipping charge using the east coast as the final destination and then refund over payments. When I return the overage, I usually do so by including cash inside the package when it's shipped. My feedback page will show verification that I do return overpayments.
COMBINED SHIPPING INFORMATION
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items can fit safely into a single box. However, my web host does not have the ability to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with any of that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Due to claims that merchandise is not being received at various international countries (although Customs tracking verifies the delivery), I will no longer be able to process international orders unless payment is made with U.S. currency, including conversion fees. Orders will be processed after funds have cleared a U.S. bank. PAYPAL WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED FOR INTERNATIONAL PURCHASES. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
