Western Pacific Railroad

Publication: Doubleday, Doran and Co, Inc, 1941, Garden City

9 1/4" x 6" in bright colorful pictorial cover showing a flower vendor. 4 panels. Rear cover offers information about the flowers of San Francisco. In 1939, the Golden Gate International Exposition opened on Treasure Island in San Francisco Bay. In response, Chicago, Burlington & Quincy, Denver & Rio Grande Western, and Western Pacific railroads decided to operate a train that could take passengers to the event out in San Francisco. That train was the Exposition Flyer. It ran between Chicago and Oakland, California, for a decade between 1939 and 1949, before being replaced by the famed California Zephyr. Offers a Dinner Menu and an A La Carte Menu. "58-1-2" written in ink at top edge of rear cover, light soiling and with light wear to the extremities. Very good. A very pretty menu.
