Chessie 2023 Calendar - The Many Facets of Chessie
This is the 89th Chessie calendar since The Chesapeake & Ohio Railway began issuing them for the year 1934.
The illustrations you will see on the pages of this calendar are taken from C&O advertisements that were used in the past. In many ways the 1930s was really the golden era of Chessie. She was new and wildly popular with the traveling public -- indeed with everyone. In 1933 she burst on the scene with unexpected vigor, surprising even the C&O, which promptly hired an advertising agency of national importance to promote her. The images are all from original ads in the C&O Historical Society advertising collection. The images selected for this calendar will show the many roles that Chessie played in the C&O's advertising campaigns.
