    If it exists, someone will be collecting it. Doesn't matter what it is, someone's collecting it. Even chewed chewing gum!
    Have you checked eBay?

        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.  
          http://collectors.org/
          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 --

              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.
