I'm sure there's an organization of Menu Collectors somewhere.
People with similiar interests have an instinct for banding together in coveys or herds. It's a primal survival thing going back thousands of years!

Here's a master web site for collectors of anything.
Association of Collecting Clubs and the National Association of Collectors.

I love doing Internet Research!

Hi shadow 666,
I posted this a few years ago. It's good to see an old LUMS menu.

I was wondering if QFan might be able to provide with me a little more information on the location of the one in Ft. Lauderdale so I could give them a call.

If anyone out there knows where I might be able to find something from Lums, I would be eternally grateful!!

Thanks,

JoRose


JoRose --

Try this:

Sad to say -- when I tried to call their # a few weeks ago, I received a "This # is no longer in service" message.

Here was their breakfast menu:

Good luck.

WOW, I remember that Lums menu.  I still remember the taste of the roast beef & the Olley burgers.

Patricia Murphy's was a always special place for me. Check those 1953 prices.
