Railroads, ocean liners, and airplanes were among the technological marvels of the early 20th century that made pleasure travel feasible and luxurious. This new found freedom to explore the world sparked a Golden Age of Travel that would last – despite a Great War and a Depression – until the outbreak of World War II. I have always had an appreciation for the artistic flare of travel posters from the 30’s to the 60’s. The artists really did a great job at capturing your imagination and igniting your passion to travel. A lot of the imagery was very colorful and simple with an art deco flare to them.
