Do you know this American Victory City?
60 Square Miles that have become
the Headquarters for Democracy
When George Washington asked Major Pierre Charles
L'Enfant, French comrade-in-arms, in the American
Revolution, to lay out the Nation's capital, the father of his
country envisioned a city not as large as London but equal to
all others in Europe.
World War II finds tracts of land which compose the 60
square miles of Washington, the Headquarters of Democracy.
Here the United Nations sit in council--here the vast forces of
America are marshalled for victory -- here "Lend Lease" originates
-- here lawmaker and magistrate, soldier and citizen shape the
world to come. Washington is, in truth, America's Number One
Victory City. PCA salutes you!
By shortening the distances and minutes between America's Victory
Cities, Pennsylvania Central Airlines proudly serves the daily trans-
portation needs of those whose efforts are so essential to the winning
of the war - just as it has faithfully served America's peacetime
civilian needs for sixteen consecutive years.
