Today, we wanted to share a railroad brochure from the summer of 1913. Although our summer has just ended, we found it interesting to look back to a summer in the glory days of travel were things were not always rush-rush and crowded-crowded.
For those of you who have followed recent posts here you may recognize, in the photographs, some familiar locations and scenes. The lines of the Chicago, Milwaukee, and St. Paul Railway traversed some of the most scenic parts of the Pacific Northwest along the route from Chicago to Seattle.
One reason these antique publications fascinate us is the way railroads marketed travel at a time when travel was much more of a "special occasion" than it is today.
Thanks for stopping by John's Island.
