Every Monday we share an image on the Essex on Lake Champlain Facebook page and invite our viewers to play some Vintage Essex Trivia. Last week we shared this old ferry brochure dating back to 1963. The cover and back side of the brochure had the same content as seen above.
Have you ever seen (or remember actually using) this old ferry brochure? What do you think of it? Like the style? Do you recognize the ferry on the cover? I’m not sure if it modeled after a specific ferry or just the all the ferries running on the lake in general as there is no name on it. What do you think?
Below you can take a look at an interior page of the brochure, which gives a short history of Lake Champlain and talks about the amenities of Lake Champlain Transportation Company’s ferry services. Click the image to enlarge if you need to read any of the text:
