Dear ______: Slightly more than one year ago here in Seattle we started to completely modernize our transportation system. We have now finished the job, and we're proud of it. Our new equipment is the latest in trackless trolleys, diesel and gasoline buses. We're all using it to get places in half the time with twice the convenience. We hope you'll come to Seattle this year and enjoy our grand climate and unsurpassed scenic and recreational facilities in the Heart of the Evergreen Playground.
Compliments - Baxter's Fifth Avenue - Women's Shoes.
