[Postcard picturing the train Hiawatha, claiming “Nothing faster on rails between Chicago-Milwaukee and St. Paul-Minneapolis.” Postmarked on 3 August 1941 at 10:30 p.m. at Minneapolis, Minnesota. Addressed to Miss Crystal K., Berwyn, Illinois.]
How are you, I’m fine. We reached St. Paul about 8:20. The train crossed the Mississippi at La Crosse and followed it all the way up. Naturally, the scenery was beautiful.
Thinking of you,
The blurb on the back of the postcard reads:
The Milwaukee Road’s Hiawathas cruise easily at 100 m.p.h. and are capable of more than two miles per minute, but speed is not all. Silence and riding ease, luxurious cars, air conditioned comfort, delightful meals and courteous service have combined to make the Hiawathas the most popular trains in the world. No extra fare.
