    Description
    A menu in the shape of a fan from the NIEUW HOLLAND of the Royal Interocean Lines from Wednesday 8 January 1958. The chef was N.G.M. Ertemeya.
    SignificanceShip menus became important souvenirs for passengers travelling aboard. They were often signed by other passengers and usually featured decorative covers and were mementos of elaborate meals served.
    HistoryThe SS NIEUW HOLLAND was built for KPM (Koninklijke Paketvaart Mij) in Amsterdam and was completed in 1928. She commenced regular services from Malaya, via Singapore and Indonesia to Australia. She was requisitioned in 1940, and was modified to become a troop transport ship for up to 1,000 troops. Upon completion she joined the Royal Navy, but she continued to be operated by her Dutch crew.
    SS NIEUW HOLLAND was returned to her owners, now Royal Interocean Lines, in 1948 and returned to her role as a passenger liner. In 1958 it was decided to terminate her services and she commenced her final voyage to Australia in January 1959. The SS NIEUW HOLLAND was broken up in Hong Kong in 1959.
