Contest Entry: Vacation - Bermuda

BERMUDA IS "ENGLAND"!

1920s (via elevenvintage on etsy)

England in miniature, within two days of New York! Like a trip abroad, to see British customs, government, battleships and regiments.  English and Canadian visitors.  International golf, tennis, and yacht races.

Bermuda is the international all-year playground. Its equitable climate is sub-tropical, averages ranging 60ª-70ª in winter. No motors or railways--clean, quiet, and restful is this "Land of the Lily and the Rose."

Passports not required.  For details of steamships, hotels, boarding places, and furnished cottages, request booklet from The Royal Mail Steam Packet Co., 26 Broadway, the Furness Bermuda Line, 34 Whitehall Street, or
