These Are Actual Menus For The Titanic's First, Second, And Third Class Passengers
You're not going to believe what they served the third class passengers.

One hundred and four years after its sinking, the Titanic continues to fascinate people all over the world, and it's not just because of the tremendous scope of its tragedy. The story of the Titanic is the story of Old World heroism and nobility, but it's also the story of Old World class differences. Case in point: the dining menus for first, second, and third class passengers.
As one might expect, the first class luncheon menu is filled with delicacies such as roast beef, grilled mutton chops, and Chicken a la Maryland. Even the paper looks fancy.
The second class menus are definitely a downgrade, but they're still filled with tasty treats like baked haddock in sharp sauce, spring lamb in mint sauce, and roast turkey in cranberry sauce. And there's plum pudding! And something called wine jelly, which sounds awesome.
The third class menu, on the other hand, basically serves slop for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Anyone up for some rice soup and boiled potatoes? If you look at the bottom left, you'll see gruel listed. Actual gruel.
