"Through the Alps to Niagara
The desire to view Niagara Palls in itscH arguet one a
lovcr of Mature's handiwork.
To go by the Lehigh Valley is to double the pleasure ol
your trip by sceing "The \mrru.in \lps" eil route.
The Lehigh is the romantic avenue tothe splcndorsof the
great cataract. Winding through beautiful vallcys, skirting
( harming rivers and icntineled by majestic mountains, this
road is concededly the urtnt scenic line ol eastern America.
li carries you through a natural arl gallery, hungwith
wondrous landscapes and still lifc pictures, ever changing
in the frame of your car window.
All the while you are swiftlygliding over asmooth, stone
hallasted road-bed,guardcd by the menstapprovedautomatic
snfety signals, and with luxurious train equipment.
\nd you are breathing pure mountain air laden with the
scent of the woods?free from soot and cinders for the
Lehigh burns Anthracite exc/usive/y.
\ glorious ride by rail, yet most of the way besidc water.
Such a trip, with Niagara Falls as its climax, is as
fast inating a journey as could well be imagined?one that
is mc.isurcd by enjoyment rather than by miles or minute.s.
