Coronation of Tzar Nicolas II

This is a double postcard from the 1920s reproducing the menu from the coronation of the Tzar Nicolas II in 1896. What did they eat on such a grand occasion?

Wow isn't this an interesting card?
Thats a menu?
It looks more like a religious thing with holy bread wine and at the bottom must be pheasant or peacocks. I wish I could see it better.
Very nice !!!

I suppose that a coronation would have been a religious occasion too. It is beautiful. I don't seem to be able to get the images as large as I used to on Blogger
