Crescent travel package brochure, 1979.

Multi-color printed paper brochure issued in 1979 to promote travel packages to Atlanta and New Orleans aboard the Crescent (New York-New Orleans). In February of that year, Amtrak took over the operation of the Washington-New Orleans portion of the route from the Southern Railway. To celebrate the takeover, Amtrak launched a promotional campaign under the phrase “Southern Comforts and all that Jazz!”
