In Honor of Lord Sandwich

I thought I was going to set my dolls, dressed in 18th century garb, around a gaming table, playing cards, too busy to pause for a proper meal. One of them would, of course, be John Montagu, Fourth Earl of Sandwich, who according to legend, asked his servant to bring him an easy to consume meal--a slab of meat between two slices of bread.

By the way, in 1778, Captain Cook named the Sandwich Islands (present day Hawaii) and South Sandwich Islands after Lord Sandwich. Cook. Sandwich. Haha. How ironic.

A modern day sandwich made by Pippaloo.
