American Wonderland 1926

Published a year after the similarly titled Through the American Wonderland, you might expect this booklet to be a simple update of that one. In fact, the text and almost all of the photos are completely new. While chapters in the 1925 booklet have names like “Vacation Plus,” “Travel’s Rewards,” and “The Land Beyond,” the 1926 booklet is divided into chapters for various national parks plus other destinations.

Curiously, the one photo I can find that is in both booklets is of the Wilbur Reid house in Portland. I recognize it despite the fact that the house is mostly obscured by vegetation because the recently restored house is still located just a few blocks from where I grew up.
