Famous drive

In the upper right-hand corner of this print ad from 1948 is a stylized map of the "Niagara Parkway" which is the "Famous Drive" referred to at the top of the ad.  This is from the AdClassix site which had hundreds of old print ads available for sale. This is from the post-War era when touring these United States in mammoth new cars was rapidly becoming a new American pastime. And this was even before the Interstate system was born. I gotta say that Oldsmobile sedan looks HUGE!
