Two Fairs for One Fare -- May 17, 2015

Richmond Times-Dispatch, May 9, 1915
With expositions in both San Francisco and San Diego dedicated to the newly opened Panama Canal, and with tourism to Europe cut off, railroads like the Santa Fe tried hard to get people to take the train.  I like the "Two Fairs for One Fare" slogan.  I'm not sure why they claimed to be the "Only Line to Both Expositions."  Southern Pacific went to both.
