New Hiawathas Are Rollin’!



Call it classic. Call it simple. I just really admire this vintage advertisement.

Likely set for a magazine, full page, it captures the height of travel by rail.

And it shares what travel aboard one of the Milwaukee Road 16 streamlined Hiawathas had to offer. Yes, sir! A ride in one of those classic Skytop observations, rolling the miles by between Chicago and Seattle. Hiawatha-land.

Sometimes simple works best.
