This ID card was issued to Tom from the Montreal, Canada press club. 
This ID card announced him as an honored guest of the City of Galveston, Texas. He writes:

"While in Galveston, Texas I got a parking ticket. The police gave me this Courtesy Card to use at no charge."

This clipping reads:

TRIBUTE PAID
TO GALVESTON

Galveston was classed as one of the friendliest and most cooperative cities of any visited by the General Motors parade of Progress by Tom Van Voorhees, field representative of the scientific exhibition, in a statement to the board of school trustees.
    Voorhees contacted school officials to see if any damage was done to the Alamo school grounds, with the idea of paying for such damage. The exhibition was stage on the Alamo grounds.
    School officials advised him the grounds were left in even better shape than they were before the Parade of Progress used them.
    Voorhees also paid tribute to the conduct of Galveston children. He said "their conduct was superior here any any city in which the exhibit was shown."
