Oyster Bay Pilot
The Oyster Bay Pilot. Oyster Bay, N.Y. Saturday 30 September 1899. Vol VIV, no. 44.
This issue features a summary of mealtimes at English country houses. Breakfast at 9:00 consisted of two eggs, half a partridge, three rashers of boiled bacon, a muffin and marmalade, with dressed fish, broiled fowl, omelet, cold ham, and cutlets serving as alternates. Lunch ensued at 1:30, followed in due order by tea at 4:30 and, finally, dinner at 8:30.
Page one's sole cut, shown here, illustrates the day's summer and yachting dresses, white being the "prevailing choice."
The nameplate employs a display font whose ringlet "O" in Oyster represents the sort of typeface popular in the last decade of the nineteenth century.
