Vintage Travel Advertisements

It's no secret that inspiration for design is recycled from earlier examples in history that have expired in time (fashion, music, design), only to be brought back in a new form that usually has some changes, but keeping the elemental aspects of the original style.  Looking at older work offers a different perspective on graphic design in such a way that seems more humbling in that there was not as much comparison of work as is evident today with online archives and such.  I always like to look at vintage graphic design as more honest graphic design, not to discredit the integrity of current designers or anything.
