Free American Vintage Travel Posters
Up to date on February 20, 2015 Carla Chadwick moreContact Writer I really like these vintage journey posters so much because I love to travel and I am a big fan of vintage art. What could possibly be better than the two combined?
These vintage posters are from all over America, although they do not signify each state. But the principle tourist locations are represented, as well as some cool “See America” posters that feature iconic American landmarks or landscapes. Airlines are additionally represented on among the posters and a few of them urge you to “travel by train.”
The posters I really like the most have artwork that is actually period-particular. I estimate these are all from the early to mid-20th Century and clearly a number of the clothes, airline names or different specifics might solely be from those eras. For example, the poster for the brand new York Municipal Airports has a reference to then-New York Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia and the 1934 World’s Truthful poster makes it pretty clear when it was revealed. One in every of my favorites within the blast-from-the-past department, although, needs to be the Philadelphia poster that depicts a Leave It to Beaver-like household in 50s garb, posing in front of the Liberty Bell.
However the poster I like one of the best is for Yosemite. I love the colours and the art fashion however that is not the rationale it is my favorite. It is as a result of I have a vivid Yosemite-related reminiscence from when I was a baby. My household and i have been playing one of those automobile games that keep children occupied while we have been on vacation when I was seven or eight (though if reminiscence serves we had been driving to San Francisco, not Yosemite). I do not remember what the game was but I think it had something to do with naming a spot that began with a letter that was the identical as the final letter of the place named by the particular person before. I had seen the word “Yosemite” someplace however had never heard anyone pronounce it. So when it was my turn, I wanted a spot that started with a “Y.” I hemmed and hawed for a second and then I realized that Yosemite was a great answer. I bought so excited, I yelled out “YOZ-MYTE! For those outside the U.S. who aren’t acquainted with the pronunciation of this lovely American nationwide park’s name, it’s undoubtedly not Yoz-myte, but quite Yo-seh-mah-tee. After all, everyone thought that was hilarious and i didn’t hear the end of it for a really very long time.
