These are of vintage designs! Almost like what collectors would have desired

These are both great posters. Love the art work on the 1910 poster, and the graphics on the 1932 poster.

Excellent graphics.

The aircraft of 1932 looks interesting. Do you know anything about it?

VP said...

Sven - I think it is a Savoia-Marchetti S.55, a legendary and record-setting airplane.

Love the old post cards! The one on the left seems to be printed on a linen stock. Very nice.

Happy Sunday,
Lois

LOVE classic signs that tell a past.

The 1910 postcard is fantastic! Our house in Florida has very high ceilings, so we need artwork that is oversized. I have framed vintage posters of places we love -- like Lake Como, Mont St. Michel, Egypt, etc. -- and placed them there. I'll bet this postcard was once a large poster, too.

Both posters are fantastic! The one from 1932 has such a cool design.

Beautiful. We need more discounts like that a century later.
