When we find something inside something else we like to keep them together if they're related, which these items are. If you love Cape Cod you will enjoy a 1950's spin on vacationing at the Cape. The red book is much less commercial and more about the stories, history and beautiful scenery of the area with nice prose and 47 full page black and white photographs. The booklet measures 5-1/2"x8-1/2" and has 96 pages. The other brochure is all about fun -- great ads for anything a visitor could want, what to see and do, and fact about the area. NOTE that neither item is dated, but I was able to find it due to the section about the symphony in the brochure where it said that it had debuted in 1955 and were back for a second season. Both items are clean and nice, but red book has sunned at spine and has a light indentation to one page from a paperclip.
