These ads are going to take you straight back to the glory days of travel. When people got dressed up, and I mean really decked out, to get on a plane or a train.
None of this “sweatpants and sandals” business that you see every day on planes now. Back in the 1950s and 1960s (and earlier), folks were excited to travel and it showed. It was like going to a party or to a reception.
Let’s take a look at these cool, vintage advertisements from yesteryear. Take me back!
1. Smoothest ride in the world.
2. Check out the duds.
3. Sit back and relax.
4. Head to the Golden State.
5. Riding in style.
6. Love the imagery.
7. Jump on the Southern Pacific.
8. They do it all!
9. The glory of the West.
10. Looks comfortable to me.
11. Be a seasoned traveler.
12. Or by sea!
13. Fun in the sun.
14. See ya next time!
15. Fly overseas to the Emerald Isle.
If I had a time machine, I’d head straight back to the 1950s in a heartbeat!
