The art of travel: Luggage Labels

Welcome to probably the first blog devoted to the art of luggage labels. Luggage labels are fascinating bits of hotel history from the golden age of travel, roughly the 1900's to 1950's. During this time these labels were used by hotels as advertising and eagerly applied to steamer trunks, suitcases and all sorts of luggage by hotel staff, mainly bellhops. Today, these same labels are highly desirable and sought after by collectors all over the world. This blog will serve as resource of information about these fascinating bits of travel history.


Blogger don't chase it said...

what an exquisitely beautiful picture: I love graphic design from this era, especially the colour palletes used (as in the really old Disney films, and films like Heaven Can Wait). . .

and what a wonderful idea for a blog - I hope it continues to develop and look forward to seeing/reading more!

(my own blog is a piece of nonsense, don't waste your time with it)
