'See the World's Fair at Chicago in the Most Comfortable Manner'

This handout touts the Grand Trunk Railway as the fairgoer's best bet for price, speed and comfort in travel to the world's fair. The railroad was sharing the information on what they advertised as the best way for someone to travel west to Chicago from the eastern part of the country. This included those who sailed the Atlantic from Europe to see the world's fair. The company was well-represented abroad and helped book passengers from England to New York, and then by the Grand Trunk Railway on to Chicago. The foldout includes information on all aspects of travel with illustrations of sights along the way to Chicago. The images, like the text, are in green and they are printed very light--definitely not the state of the art printing in 1893. Still, a nice and scarce little Columbian brochure for the general collector or the person specializing in travel literature.
