A menu from the last dinner served to first-class passengers aboard the doomed Titanic before the luxury ocean liner sank in 1912 has fetched nearly $NZ184,000 ($120,000 USD) at auction.
The Titanic menu was among a rare collection of items from the sunken ship that were up for bid at the Dallas-based Heritage Auctions sale of political and Americana memorabilia.
The menu showed that passengers ate corned beef, dumplings, beetroot and custard pudding as their final meal on the ocean liner that sank on April 15, 1912.
When food was served on the Titanic, meals often lasted up to five hours, serving up 13 courses of gourmet ingredients to wealthy diners.
The luxury ocean liner sank in the Atlantic Ocean on April 15, 1912 after striking an iceberg during its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York. In total 1,503 people died, including passengers and crew.
