Description

Despite the imagery of glitz and glam in the city, the outdoors were also a popular destination during the roaring 20’s. Bob-haired women can be seen hiking in the forests of Oregon on the pictorial covers of this brochure, published in 1924 to promote the lines of the Southern Pacific Railroad.

Camping, golfing, fishing, and relaxing at the beach are some of the numerous other activities covered in the intervening 30 pages, accompanied by descriptive text and photographs. Notable examples include a panorama of Crater Lake, ‘The Surf-Bather’s Joy…at Tillamook Beaches’, and oyster gathering at Nye Beach.

The final page presents two maps; a detailed map of the Southern Pacific Lines in western Oregon and a broader map of the entire system across the southern United States. Printed in Portland by the Kilham Stationary & Printing Company.
