While I was in the TWA Hotel last week at New York Kennedy, I enjoyed viewing a gallery of vintage TWA travel posters.
Vintage TWA Travel Posters
The TWA Hotel does so many things well, but one of my favorite and appropriate features of this hotel is a hallway lined with vintage travel posters in the lobby. These were all designed by David Klein between 1955 and 1965. The originals are on display at the New York Museum of Modern Art.
These posters were before my time, but are a reminder of TWA’s worldwide reach and rich heritage as global carrier. I flew TWA exactly once in my life, from Los Angeles to Washington National via St. Louis shortly after the merger with American Airlines was announced. As such, these posters do not have quite the personal connection for me, yet as a lover of travel heavily resonate.
