Vacations East

At first glance, this booklet looks like part of the same series of color-photo booklets as the Dude Ranches and Sun Valley guides. It doesn’t quite fit, however, mainly because of its size: 8-1/2″x11″ instead of 5-1/4″x7-1/2″. Inside there are one or two pages each on Chicago, St. Louis, Omaha, New York City, New England, Washington DC, and Niagara Falls.

Two more pages feature brilliant photos and descriptions of Union Pacific passenger trains, with two additional pages of travel tips and the usual list of UP sales offices. Rather than the expected map of the destinations advertised in the booklet, the back cover features a beautiful map of “the Union Pacific West” that is signed “Willmarth.”
