    Vintage Travel Posters

    A collection of vintage travel posters hosted on the Los Angeles Public Library website.
    They can be downloaded as full size images, perfect for a print or two.

    There's 89 in all that you can see here Travel Posters | Los Angeles Public Library
    and here are a few of the best to give you an idea.

    Enjoy









    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"

    Excellent! They're so gaudy and colourful.
    Interesting that most are advertising some very exotic destinations which would only be for the very wealthy.
    Found a few more good ones by searching Flikr.

    It is really cool. There's a couple or three from the Los Angeles library site that I'll get printed and put into frames, the colours are really vibrant and the images very evocative I think is the right word.

    I used to like provocative, now I like evocative... really am mellowing out.

    i watched a docu the other day, just after world war 2 where there was a big spike in the economy, hmmm, maybe it was world war 1 and the 1920's. Anyway there was a huge advertising campaign about visiting France.

    The irony is too much for me on a Monday morning. Not sure whether to laugh sardonically, or weep.
