Summary expansion
Union Pacific developed one of the most detailed dining car cook books in the industry, placed aboard each dining car and consulted by crew members during trips. The books were issued in loose-leaf format, and thus could be updated regularly. Following [12] pages of "permanent" service instructions, are 16 sections of recipes, arranged alphabetically and separated by salmon-colored tab dividers lettered A through P. Sections include the usual food groups such as Fruit, Juices, Cereal; Appetizers; Soups, Sauces; Fish and Sea Food; Poultry and Game; Veal; Lamb; Beef; Potatoes and Vegetables; Desserts; Bread, Toast, Rolls; Coffee, Tea, Milk; and Cold Meats, Children's Menus, Dietary Meals. Illustrated with 17 original photographic prints, black-and-white and color, mounted on rectos of the section dividers

Spec. Coll. copy: apparently assigned for use aboard the Los Angeles Limited (and never to be removed from the dining car) as suggested by a menu cover for the Los Angeles Limited mounted on verso of upper cover, decorated with a spray of yellow California poppies. Beginning in 1905, the Los Angeles Limited was the flagship train of the Union Pacific between Chicago & Los Angeles. As ridership declined, service finally ended in 1954.
