United Airlines Hawaii Outrigger Poster
The post-World War II economic boom that swept the United States included a strong demand for air travel. And as early as 1947, United Airlines inaugurated its service to the Hawaiian islands, a destination both patriotic and nearly mythic in its tropical allure. This spectacular destination poster comes right at the potential tourist, a wondrous combination of the exotic and the athletic, a potent combination that creates fun on an absolutely pure level. Throw the dormant Diamondhead volcano in for good measure in the background and you've arrived at can't-fail promotion.
