Epicurean Kentuckian: Menu at Hancock Hotel, 107 years ago - JIM

Food & History November 25, Thanksgiving in Columbia, KY, 107 years ago, included a menu skasely found anywhere today. We don't have a photo, but it conjures up in the mind readily just reading the list :
"The Thanksgiving menu at the Hancock Hotel (25 Nov 1910): Roast beef, grape jelly, apple sauce, cream potatoes, turkey, cranberries, celery, chipped potatoes, scalloped oysters, chicken, nut salad, salmon salad, pickles, wafers, corn bread, biscuit, lightbread, butter, tea, coffee, milk, black cake, marble cake, Tuti fruiti cake, and custard."
The menu is excerpted from a JIM article from Thanksgiving, 25 Nov 2010, more than worthwhile to read in its brief entirety: 100 years ago: Thanksgiving in Adair Co., KY, which, of course is 107 years ago as of this post. For the few not around in 1910, the Hancock Hotel was located where Farm Bureau South is today, at 105 Burkesville Street, Columbia, KY.
