This edition of West is undated and there is nothing inside to indicate even a year. As promised on the cover, pages 2 and 3 focus on New Orleans, while page 4 briefly depicts other sites on the Sunset Route, including Houston, San Antonio, and Carlsbad Caverns.
I try to be tolerant and not let my twenty-first-century values criticize twentieth-century advertising. But this one just sickens me a little. In addition to the cover, an interior photo of a black man dancing in the street is captioned, “this grinning lad was caught in the act of giving free rein to his animal spirits.” It was bad enough that white Americans kept blacks impoverished, but this made it even worse by making money turning their poverty into tourist attractions.
