They are old menus from Matson cruise lines (Has anyone come across these being used for any other cruise lines?)
you can find them printed & unprinted mostly from 1957 to 1967 (general era in use)
The menu you bought is "New Zealand by artist Louis Macouillard 1913-1987"
more info here

Great deal!

Yup! ATP is right. I have the same ones myself. But I have not seen them for another cruise line.

The New Zealand "Maori Village" menu by "Macouillard" is one of my favorites
I double checked & these were commissioned by Matson Cruise Lines
so they wouldn't have been used by any other Cruise companies.

Wow, what a bargain. I bought one at a paper show in Glendale (for way more than I should have.. ) and it didn't even have the menu on the back.

Nice framing job as well, congrats!

So cool to get the quick feedback from ATP so you know what you have. They are very beautifully framed now...I like the matting too. CONGRATULATIONS...they are awesome.

thanks everyone!!! I got a call from the folks and they think they have 2 more as part of the set, as well as some cool California coastal photos used by the Dept of Rec. for postcards, seems the lady who passed was a photographer and took lots of coastal photos, sea life, sunsets, beach life and such, so heres keeping my fingers crossed they find the stuff in the garage as they dig through all her stuff.
