|Admin/Biographical History||This ad promotes Delta-C&S Air Lines service to Florida from the Midwest, and to the Caribbean via New Orleans, over routes that Delta had recently inherited from a merger with Chicago and Southern Air Lines in May 1953. After the merger, the airline was known as Delta-C&S until mid-1955. Delta had served Florida since 1945, from cities in the South. Delta began flying the Douglas DC-7 on April 1, 1954.|
|Scope & Content||
Full-color illustrated magazine advertisement. Text: "MIAMI is calling...It's not hard to hear Miami's call these chilly days, even a thousand or more miles away. But that's not surprising because Miami is remarkably - and comfortably - close to all the Midwest and the South on fast-moving Delta-C&S. Call one of the local phone numbers shown on the map - or any Delta-C&S office. Miami is closer than you think!
Island hopping in the modern Caribbean makes a delightful tropic vacation, now that Delta-C&S has twice-daily service from New Orleans. Ask at any Delta office for maps and guide book."
