Coast to Coast: Vintage Travel in North America


Coast to Coast presents an extraordinary journey—via rail, steamboat, automobile, and even horseback— of a continent just beginning to discover itself. Traveling through the great cities, magnificent landscapes, and highways of a bygone America, the book is illustrated with vintage photographs, posters, travel brochures, and other charming ephemera.
 
By the end of the 19th century, North America was fully settled, and the era’s robust economy led to the invention of affordable popular tourism. Even people of modest means could comfortably tour the continent, and a wealth of tourist attractions awaited: Niagara Falls, Crater Lake, the Grand Canyon and other sites in the brand-new national parks, New York’s Pennsylvania Station, San Francisco’s Embarcadero, the French Quarter in New Orleans, the Banff Springs Hotel, and many more.
 
With five maps and nine color inserts of facsimile menus, guidebooks, and vintage postcards displaying everything from cog railways running up Mount Washington to ostrich farms outside Pasadena and Arkansas’s spectacular Hot Springs, this brilliantly researched book provides a tour of an America just beginning to flex its muscles as a world-class tourist attraction.
