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 $5.95.
I gladly combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items can safely fit in to a single package. It is best if possible to contact me first to let me know which items you'll be purchasing so that I can adjust the shipping charges, otherwise at checkout you will be charged the full shipping fee for each item. Should that happen, and if appropriate to do so, I refund a portion of those charges.
NOTE - With this year's postal increase, all shipping charges increased and international shipping took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. 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.
