What's For Breakfast?

The Breakfast Menu from The Barnum Hotel in 1863.  No scrapple?
Obviously people in the 1860's had a wider range of breakfast selections, instead of bacon and eggs, also notice they serve Breakfast wine.  The wine is extra but the food was usually part of the price of the room.
Founded by David Barnum in the 1800's, the Barnum's Hotel on Calvert and Fayette Streets in Baltimore, Maryland was famous for good living throughout the civilized world and quoted as "the most comfortable of all hotels in the United States", by Charles Dickens, a guest in 1842.
