Grand Canyon and the Indian Empire

We’ve already seen a low-resolution version of this booklet from the University of Arizona library, but I’ve since acquired one of my own and so can provide a higher-resolution PDF. Despite the phrase “Indian detour” in the right-hand title, this one mainly advertises Santa Fe’s intercity bus service, not New Mexico and Arizona guided tours described in the booklets of the last few days.

The bus shown on the front (and back) appears to be an American Car & Foundry H-9-P, which ACF introduced in 1935 and and replaced with a newer model (which Santa Fe soon acquired) in 1938. The Trailways Bus System was not formed until 1936, so this undated booklet must be from 1937 or 1938.
