Description

This Baltimore and Ohio Railroad poster features a photograph of the interior of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D. C. The text following the photograph promotes the "almost endless number of places and objects of historic interest" that every American should visit. The text then decribes the advantages of traveling to Washinton, D. C., on the Baltimore and Ohio lines and suggests that the reader order a copy of the 48-page "Guide to Washington" just published by the Baltimore and Ohio. A map of the various cities served by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad is at the end. All of the above are framed within a decorative border.
