Dublin restaurant menu from 1907. North Wall Dublin

Just came across this interesting photo of a menu from the North Western Hotel, North Wall Dublin. Included are glimpses into the fine interior and what would have been a very busy terminus in the late 19th century into early 20th century. For your 3 shillings and 6pence you were treated to such delights ranging from Consomme Julienne, Cream Bavaroise and apricots, to pigeon, lamb and sole. Considering it was 1907, I can imagine a recreation of that menu happening in a Dublin eatery of today? I wonder! A fascinating snippet of fine dining of old Dublin.
