Magic Windows

This little along-the-way brochure is dated February 1954 and includes several of New York Central’s major routes in west-to-east format: Chicago-Buffalo via either Toledo or Detroit; Cleveland-Cincinnati; Cleveland-St. Louis; Cincinnati-Chicago; Albany-Boston; and Buffalo-New York.

For some reason, the Central thought that its patrons might want to mail this brochure to their friends “as an interesting souvenir of your trip.” When folded up it becomes a “self-mailing folder.” But it wasn’t really self-mailing: you had to write an address and put on a stamp.
