More Railroad Printing and Advertisement

The railroads printed quantities of travel posters evoking the romance of somewhere far away, a place you could get to if only you bought a ticket. Here's a circa 1923 poster by Frank Hazell, published by the New York Central and illustrating West Point and the U. S. Military Academy there. This was offered recently for sale on eBay.

Here West Point has been magically transformed to a fantasy castle out of the Arabian Nights. As always, click image for a larger version.

  1. Advertising or sticking bill on public transport has become the latest means of promoting a product/ brand or offering different kind of service. It has become a trend to communicate to the people through these means. Advertising in the train has become a standard of business to promote the product as thousands of commuters travel by the train to reach their destination.
