Formal and romantic. Was there really a time when people went on vacation wearing suits and riding trains with names like the Super Chief and the Zephyr? Today, it sounds like fantasy.

It's like those pictures of men wearing suits and hats at baseball games.

Tourism was certainly classier back then. I'm certain you'll enjoy these Swedish posters from the old days.

Very nice. I like the one with the steam train best.
