  • The early 1950's saw the vast expansion of air travel for consumers. This particular image was created for United Air Lines by Stan Galli in his modernist style that is so well regarded even 60 years later. In this image, we are seeing a couple riding in a horse drawn carriage through Central Park in New York. In the background is a view of some of the Manhattan skyline.
     
    United Airlines, Inc., commonly referred to as United, is a major U.S. airline headquartered in Chicago, Illinois.  It is the world's third-largest airline when measured by revenue, after American Airlines and Delta Air Lines. United operates a large domestic and international route network, with an extensive presence in the Asia-Pacific region. United is a founding member of Star Alliance, the world's largest airline alliance. United was founded in 1926 as Varney Air Lines and was later known as United Air Lines (UAL). Just prior to the use of the United Airlines name, The Boeing Company operated a predecessor airline.
