Here is probably one of the coolest sets of postcards that the Santa Fe Railroad and the Fred Harvey Company ever published. It is a set of 10 postcards (5 are pictured) from the 1940's. They are linen type postcards in a great envelope.
Santa Fe Transcontinental Train with its streamlined cars in gleaming stainless steel, and 6,000 H.P. Diesel-Electric locomotive.
Fitted with roomy sofas, comfortable big chairs, and small tables facing a modernistic bar, the lounge car on the "SUPER CHIEF" has panelled walls of exquisite woods with inlaid Indian ceremonial figures, and authentic Navajo patterns in the window shades and decorations.
Passengers relax leisurely for a luxurious Fred Harvey meal in the dining car of the Santa Fe's streamlined transcontinental "EL CAPITAN."
One of the unique features of the dining cars on the "SUPER CHIEF" is the specially designed china, featuribg Indian designs found on the centuries-old pottery of New Mexico.
Under the shadow of the lofty precipitous Sierra Madre Range lies beautiful San Gabriel Valley. The Valley contains about 100 square miles of territory, nearly all of which has been transformed from sterile desert into a succession of small homes and thriving little cities.
