Standard Airlines artistic Postcards

A big thanks again to Daniel Kusrow of Airline Timetable Images for donating hard copies of these great and artistic Standard Airlines postcards to the 'Jack Frye - Aviation Pioneer' blog. They really represent the style and mood of the times in an artful and attractive way of advertising that has unfortunately been lost in our modern era.

These 1929 era postcards detailing the Los Angeles and El Paso route schedules make me want to go take a hop on Standard Airlines! Bright colors and a vintage flavor set these advertisements apart from the competition. A trait Jack Frye and his crew diligently pursued in all facets to growing their ground breaking airline of the 20's.
