SOUTHERN PACIFIC CLUB'S SECOND ANNUAL WINTER OUTING LAKE TAHOE MARCH 2-3, 1929 [cover title]. N.p. [San Francisco]: Southern Pacific Club, 1929. 21.5x 14 cm, pp. [1-32] (not paginated), 5 illustrations, text mechanically reproduced from typewritten copy, original pictorial wrappers, stapled. First edition. The program for the second (and last?) of the club's Winter Outings held in the Truckee Basin at Tahoe Tavern (by then owned by the Southern Pacific Company and open year round). The Southern Pacific began promoting winter sports and direct rail service to Truckee and vicinity in the 1920s. They operated the "Snowball Express," a party train that conveyed hundreds (sometimes thousands) of tourists to Truckee so they could enjoy the annual winter carnival the town first established in 1895 and the "Tahoe Tavern Winter Sports Grounds." "Every weekend from early February into March, fun-loving visitors could spend the day sledding, ice skating, and tobogganing before Saturday night dancing and saloon-hoping in Truckee's business district" (McLaughlin). Closed tears and small lower rear corner chip in overlapping wrapper fore-edges, a very good copy. (#167640).
