Recommended Viewing | Art of the Luggage Label's Flickr Set...
Friend and design colleague at Circle, Robert L. Peters recently blogged about a really cool collection of historic luggage labels on Flickr.
Excerpt from Rob's blog post: I stumbled across this lovely little collection today, an “image stream and information resource devoted to the art of luggage labels and related travel ephemera. Luggage labels are fascinating bits of hotel history from the golden age of travel, roughly the 1900s to 1960s. 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.” Check out the Flickr set here - enjoy!
