2. "It's 'curtains' for those familiar, old, green Pullman curtains. They're out. This photo posed to show the new arrangement in the flashing, 110-miles-an-hour, all-aluminum streamlined Pullman Pacific train which is being exhibited at the World's Fair of 1934 in Chicago. Just close the aluminum door and presto, it's a nice private drawing room, convenient and homelike even if it was just a Pullman section during the daytime."
