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!
