Excerpt:
“Ancient in its civilization…tropical in its setting…fasionable in its appeal…this is the sun-blessed Isle of Sicily. Taormina, rising steeply from the Bay, in the shadow of majestic Mt. Etna…Syracuse, whose quaint historic streets will carry you back thousands of years…Palermo, whose tropical gardens and rich beauty make its favorite haunt of the fashionables.”

This is a 80 yr. old original vintage ad removed from a 1938 publication and is not a reproduction of any kind.
