Nursery Rhymes for the C & O

Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad Advertisement

This great advertisement is from a promotional brochure published by the Chesapeake and Ohio lines — the “C and O.” I ran across the brochure in a volume labeled simply “Miscellaneous Pamphlets.” The volume bears the signature and date “R.G. Cherry October 10 1931.” At the time, Cherry was in his first term in the North Carolina House of Representatives. Fourteen years later he was elected Governor of North Carolina.
