2019 America by Rail Wall Calendar


Description: During the first half of the twentieth century, most US towns, large and small, boasted a train station, and the sound of the midnight freight was ubiquitous. Before automobiles became cheap and coast-to-coast highways fast, reliable, and safe, long-distance train travel was both a practical choice and a relatively affordable luxury. Essential to the success of the rail industry was the advertising that brought business and vacation travelers on board. Accomplished artists were hired to create posters depicting enticing scenery and celebrating the romance, comfort, and luxury of train travel. The twelve rail posters featured in this calendar portray speeding locomotives and a variety of grand destinations, including US national landmarks and major cities.
