Wonderful Poster – Boomerang Beach, NSW, Australia

Artist is identified as Hayes – a beautiful bit of travel art from the 1950s. It looks like Boomerang Beach modified it for their own use.

Here’s the original version as it must have been used originally for BOAC and Qantas.

If you know more about either the British or Australian artist Hayes I’d love to see more of their work.

Japan Air Lines Flight Bag – 1960s

20191127_135847

Kinda hard to find all red JAL vinyl flight bag with the classic tsurumaru (circle crane) design. Back in the 1950s and 1960s, these types of travel bags were very popular as most of the major airlines had their logos proudly displayed.
The JAL red-crown crane logo was first designed in 1958 and was used until 1989.

The all-red JAL flight bag is one of the harder ones to find still in good condition. Most JAL bags were red with white sides or blue with white sides.

TWA Bag

Nothing says 1960s travel like these super cool flight bags. Thanks for stopping by! – Chris
