Great Northern Tiny Puget Sound Brochure

I’ve previously shown fifteen of the postcard-sized color brochures that Great Northern issued between about 1959 and 1964, but there are quite a few more. This one from 1959 is for the Puget Sound and San Juan Islands, natural destinations for a transcontinental railway that terminated in Seattle and whose trains covered the sound from Olympia to Vancouver, BC.

A dozen color photos and a map show historic sites, fishing, boating, carnivals, and other forms of recreation and points of interest in the area. One panel also describes the Empire Builder, Western Star, and streamlined Internationals.
