Greyhound Independent Tours brochure.

Judging by the description of Fair attractions, this must have been printed very early.

After living in Ohio for a majority of my life,  I love snapshots like this.  I knew 71 was never complete back then, just never knew what it looked like prior.

Also that Route 8/271 interchange that's not how I remember it after commuting on it for 5 years.

A couple of the general aviation airports they reported on no longer exist.  A costco now sits on Ramapo Valley.

This webpage shares the experiences of those who ran the airport and flew in and out of it in the 60's and 70's. http://www.airfields-freeman.com/NY/Airfields_NY_Rockland.htm#springvalley

Just want to add that this promotional text is one of the best I have seen, mentioning both major attractions and intriguing-sounding minor parts of them.

Bill Cotter, why are you hiding that time machine? I want to go back!
