"Rediscover Washington" poster, 1970s.

Full color printed paper poster highlighting travel by Amtrak to Washington, D.C.; likely dates to the late 1970s.

"Rediscover Washington" poster, 1970s.

Featuring George Washington and the U.S. Capitol, this poster likely dates to the late 1970s since it incorporates the "We've Been Working on the Railroad" slogan introduced by Amtrak in 1978.

The poster also highlights the U.S.A. Rail Pass, which was introduced to the domestic market in 1976. Travelers could take as many coach trips as they wished in the specified time period (14, 21, or 30 days) simply by showing the pass in exchange for a paper ticket.
