This 1950’s image by an anonymous artist shows the Pan Am System of the Flying Clippers and its destinations in Central America. The map details the various countries in the region and also shows some of their natural resources. In addition, there are 3 photo inserts with views of the region as well as a detailed Pan am logo in the lower left corner. It is a great decorative map as well as an interesting image for all of its details.

The Flying Clipper Ships were the brainchild of Juan Trippe, founder of Pan American Airways, who conceived of a fleet of seaplanes for international commercial delivery. Trippe named the service after the famously fast China clipper ships of the 1860s. Through the Clipper fleet, Pan American became the world's dominant transoceanic airline, especially for carrying mail and other cargo, although on some routes there was also space for passengers. The fleet began in 1931 with routes between the U.S. and the Caribbean and South America, and expanded to flights across the Pacific after November 1935, which left from San Francisco.

  • 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.
