(CNN) — Builders in the English city of Liverpool have unwittingly uncovered a piece of culinary and local history when an intact menu from 1913 fell from the ceiling during a renovation project. The menu, dated Wednesday January 15 1913 and branded "Yamen Café and Tea Rooms," was among a number of artifacts discovered in the rafters of the Leaf café on Bold Street, central Liverpool, last week. Haywood believes the Yamen Café and Tea Rooms would have been a high-end establishment, given the variety of menu items on offer. Courtesy LeafHaywood hopes to display the items in the café and will permanently add two items -- the Irish stew and Welsh rarebit, to the menu. She also plans to host a special evening serving a more extensive range of items from the menu, once lockdown restrictions have lifted in England and the refurbishment is complete.
