South Shore Convention & Visitors Authority (SSCVA) announced today the 25th Anniversary of Just Around the Corner South Shore Poster Series. This series had its first formal public announcement on June 10, 1997, and was coincident with the announcement of the publication of the book “Moonlight in Duneland,” a pictorial collection of the South Shore Line posters of the 1920’s, photographs of the era, and the history of the South Shore Line, in part illustrated by Mitch Markovitz.
The posters were created to encourage leisure travel to northern Indiana, increasing ridership as well as turning those leisure riders into daily commuters – focusing on the speed and ease of the South Shore Line travel.
“These posters are a way for us to directly showcase our many South Shore attractions, events and destinations that are available,” says David Uran, President and CEO at the SSCVA. “The colorful and ‘romantic’ poster series often features the Indiana Dunes National Park and the Dunes State Park – depicting our various seasons, events, holidays and beautiful views of northern Indiana.”
