Luggage Labels

The Golden Age of Travel occurred between 1890 and the outbreak of World War II. In this period, hotels abounded and the various modes of transport reached their glorious apogee. The labels, which were placed on luggage by railroads, steamships or hotels as advertising, beautifully capture the spirit of the era as small reproductions with vivid colours.
