The artwork on the Hotel Del Monte menus was originally created as 1 years' worth of advertising for the hotel (circa 1933-1934) for various publications. The hotel then determined to use the same artwork for the menus; a complimentary set could be had simply by asking the waiter. Each menu has a different date; a story about the artwork on the cover is written inside facing the menu. (Grandeau & Shorts 1 Menus:b).
