Menu - SS Stratheden, P&O Line, Dinner, 2 Sep 1963 Document Reg. No: HT 1353

Dinner Menu from the P&O Line Ship SS Stratheden for the 2 September 1963. It was collected by James Mason when he migrated to Australia with his wife and two children as 'ten pound tourists' in 1963. During the voyage James avidly collected the menus and approached the steward to obtain extras but he was unable to collect a full set. On arrival in Australia they stayed with James' brother-in-law and then purchased land in Altona almost immediately, where they have lived ever since.
Shipboard menu approx. A5 size cardboard. Yellow front with cartoon style drawing of fancy dress party on board the ship.
