Aeroplane Map of Glacier National Park

This brochure, which has a colorful map on one side and black-and-white photos and text, with brown trim, on the other side, is undated. One photo shows a bus that is clearly older than the Glacier Park red jammers, which were introduced in 1936. So I would date the brochure to sometime between 1930 and 1935.
