Collection Spotlight: Vintage Travel

Domestic air travel soared in popularity during the 1950s and 1960s due to the post-World War II economic boom and introduction of more commercial flights. During that time, air travel became an attractive and convenient mode of transportation for individuals and families. Additionally, the glamorous and sophisticated travel experience, characterized by spacious cabins and attentive service, added to the allure and appeal.

Vintage suitcases, hat bags, cosmetics cases and duffel bags

Traveling now vs. then

So, what's really different about traveling now vs. in the 1950s and 1960s? Pretty much everything.

Dress code

Traveling in the 1950s and 1960s required passengers to dress formally, often wearing their

finest attire. Today, comfort usually takes precedence over fashion.

Speed and efficiency
