Oh the places you’ll go!

If you sign up for a package tour to one of the following exotic destinations by sea or by air. Las Vegas, Puerto Rico, South America—all put together by a travel company whose name is so faint on the right edge of this building ad, I can’t quite make it out.


This ad is holding up rather well on Eighth Avenue and 39th Street, tempting passersby for decades.

    Little ‘Abe Relis’ here. I remember these guys good. Nice people. My buddies used em when they use to ship me down to Mexico to wrestle.

    Thanks for writing in again Abe. You have led quite an adventurous life, especially for a Little Person. I am curious, did you wrestle in Mexico before or after your bellhop days at the Carter Hotel?

    Actually it looks like “Complete Travel” is the name on the side of the building.

    It was an advertisement for Perillo (as in Mario, Mister Italy) Tours.

    Perillo, you’re right! I remember their other ads. Perillo package tours.
