Scenic Touring Scout.
Whittier, California. Touring League of America. Spring-Summer 1931.
Folded pamphlet 7 ¼ x 4 inches. Text on front cover states "Exclusive Listings of High Grade Auto Camps, Courts, Auto Hotel Apts., Hotels, Resorts (Rates and Classifications) Automobile Service, Where to Eat" etc. Pamphlet opens to two panels that introduce the reader to a "Key to Designations and Classifications," i.e. coded ranking of lodging choices from high end to low end—from "All modern conveniences" to "Sleeping only. No running water." Additional information details whether bedding is furnished, whether cooking utensils are available, etc. etc. When further unfolded, there are two strip maps approximately 7 ¼ x 21 inches depicting, at top, the route from Vancouver B.C. to San Jose and, beneath, the route from Sacramento to San Diego. An uncommon item in very good clean condition, designed to assist motorists in making informed choices as they travel the West Coast. The pamphlet states, at the outset: "The motor traveler finds a wider range of desirable overnight accommodations in the Pacific Coast region than anywhere else in America." Index of material provided in the "Scout" appears on the last page. Item #54983
