Standard Airlines baggage label

Vintage baggage labels are very collectable today, documenting information in sometimes colorful and artistic styles of their time. The artists are rarely known, and to find samples in this condition are equally rare.

These images of a 1930 Standard Airlines baggage label advertising the Fair Weather Route of Standard Airlines are courtesy of Daniel Kusrow on the Airline Timetable Images website. It details eastbound and westbound flights with milage and time slots as well as rail connections north and south. My how air travel back then was so much easier and simplistic. It took a little longer but air travel must have been an adventure.
