Saloon steward Jacob Gibbon mailed the breakfast menu to his girlfriend back in England to tell her that it had been a 'Good voyage up to now' three days before the infamous liner met its fate.
A rare postcard menu from a second class restaurant on the Titanic is expected to fetch a staggering $135,000 at auction.
The carte details the breakfast on offer on Thurs. Apr. 11, 1912 - just three days before the ill-fated liner struck an iceberg and sank.
On the flip-side, saloon steward Jacob Gibbon had written "Good voyage up to now" to his girlfriend - Miss L Payne - who was living in Studland Bay, Dorset, England.
He posted the card after the ship stopped at Queenstown, Cork, Ireland, which has since been renamed Cobh
While there are believed to be 20 menus from the ill-fated liner still in existence, most are from the first class eatery for Apr. 14.
This is because, with a higher percentage of first class passengers surviving the sinking, more menus were retained in their pockets as they scrambled for lifeboats.
With 93 per cent of second class male passengers perishing, however, mementos from those decks were largely lost.
