Menu from Titanic's last lunch at British auction
UK auctioneer says sale of menu from last lunch aboard Titanic could fetch $160,000
By The Associated Press

LONDON (AP) ' British auctioneers are offering a first class menu from the Titanic's last lunch, an item they claim offers a unique window on the doomed ship's Edwardian splendor.

The menu, kept by a prominent San Francisco banker, bears the date April 14, the day in 1912 that the reputedly unsinkable cruiser hit an iceberg and fell to the bottom of the Atlantic.

Devizes, England-based auctioneer Henry Aldrige & Son say that the menu is one of the "rarest items of Titanic memorabilia to be sold in recent years" and expects it to fetch up to 100,000 pounds (about $160,000) when it's offered later Saturday.

Among the 40 options on the historic menu: Chicken a la Maryland and Consomme Fermier.
