This vintage poster advertised travel via the Santa Fe Railroad. The word Santa Fe on the blue, encircled cross was the logo for the company. They chose an iconic image of a Native American chief to align their railroad with a romanticized version of America's old west. They named a number of their trains "Chief," including San Francisco Chief, Texan Chief, Kansas City Chief and Super Chief. The company began in the mid-1800s. It created demand by accepting land grants from Congress which were then sold off in small pieces to farmers and eventually became one of the largest US rail companies. The company merged with Burlington Northern Railroad in 1996.

The viewer sees a proud Native American is his headdress . This is encouraging potential travelers to visit the Southwestern part of the United States to see many of the indiginous people of the area.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
