So, for my April column in The Coweta Shopper, I decided I would write about tea sandwiches. As part of my research, I looked up some old (really old) afternoon tea menus. This one, I found on the Library of Congress website. (And isn't it comforting to think that afternoon tea doesn't look as though it's going away anytime soon?)
This menu comes from the John Wanamaker store in New York, and I have become a fan of the Wanamaker stores even though I never had the pleasure of shopping or dining at one!
I note with interest that some items remain much the same today (Chicken Salad Sandwich, anyone?), but there are two tea sandwiches listed here that give me pause, and I'll bet you can guess which ones they are!
