Pack your bags!

These advertisements were published in the Sept. 14, 1901, edition of the Houston Daily Post.

According to an inflation calculator, what cost $45.00 in 1901 would cost $997.00 these days. A $1 round trip on the Santa Fe to and from Galveston would cost $22.16 in 2005 dollars.

I think I’ll take I-45 instead.
