The items in the collection are arranged by restaurant location. When multiple menus originated from the same town or restaurant, they were placed together in individual folders. All other menus, including those from unidentified towns, have been placed in the miscellaneous series.
Many menus from the Marlborough-Blenheim Hotel were bound together; these volumes are placed together in Box 2. The rest of the hotel’s unbound menus are located in Box 1.
