America's Most Beautiful Water Trip
No, John didn't make up the title for today's post ... it is the opinion of the Washington State Ferries as expressed in a little brochure dated 1959 that we are showing you parts of today.
Cruise the "scenic circuit" ... that would be a circle trip around the waters of the Pacific Northwest, USA and Canada.
The cover art on this little brochure just seems to be done so much better than a lot of today's advertising ...
There is a "Welcome" from the Governor, at the time, Albert Roselinni. [He was the 15th Governor of Washington State and served from 1957 to 1965. He passed away about 3 years ago, in October, 2011.] There is also some "Visitor Information" ... some of it still applies today, but don't count on those addresses or phone numbers. Note that "dark glasses and suntan lotion" are "necessities."
Overall map of the area, remember ... this is 1959 style ...
Six things not to miss ...
Thank you for stopping by John's Island.
