1939 World's Fair Brochures: The Capital Region; Niagara the Unconquered; and New England for your Vacation

This is the last of the batch of brochures I recently rediscovered:

This is a thick booklet on the wonders of the state capital of New York.

It contains many photos and the history of Albany.

A page on schools and education.

Limestone Caverns and Sharon Springs health resorts.

A little hard cover book about Niagara Falls

An aerial view of the Falls


Other great waterfalls

A large paper foldout map of New England to help you plan your vacation.

Interesting item about what is real Yankee cooking.
