Santa Fe (San Francisco) 1950s Poster


In the 1940s and 1950s, railway travel promotion evolved into its own special niche of art. Rail companies commissioned highly talented artists to illustrate scenes from various routes and destinations — colorful, enticing images beckoning travelers to expand their horizons. These special creations have gained in popularity in recent years, and collectors are thrilled to find the original posters. The Santa Fe Railroad produced some of the most enchanting of these travel advertisements, like the one offered here, with the twinkling Golden Gate Bridge at twilight, summoning visitors to the magical City by the Bay.
