Miami is Calling - 1954

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."
