Souvenir Viewbook, "Haynes Souvenir Folder of Yellowstone Park," 1934

Summary

Yellowstone National Park, established 1872, was America's first national park. After automobiles were allowed in the national parks (Yellowstone in 1915), attendance increased dramatically. The growing popularity of Yellowstone, like other parks, led to improvements in roads, campgrounds, parking lots, supply stations, and restrooms--along with an increase in souvenirs like this postcard viewbook.
