Searching for a completely different event using Newspapers.com I could not help sharing this add for Braniff Airlines. Today, when people are starting to book flights again, it is incredible to see these vintage ads when few hotel rates in South Padre Island for this summer go lower than $200 a night.

The ad is an invitation to escape the heat just like we wish we could do right now even though it looks like there are few cool places in the US today. Central Mexico is very cool in the summer with some afternoon torrential rains.

The Harlingen Airport was located at the present site of the Harlingen Country Club.
