Panair do Brasil began operations on October 22, 1929, as NYRBA do Brasil S.A., a Brazilian subsidiary of NYRBA, Inc. (New York, Rio, and Buenos Aires Line), forerunner of Pan American. Both airlines were established by Ralph Ambrose O'Neill for the transportation of post and passengers using seaplanes between the United States, Brazil and Argentina, flying over the east coast of the continent.
This poster is very much in the style of the planispheres created by Lucien Boucher for Air France. The image shows the origin of airline in Brazil and the many destinations that it reached at the time of this poster. It uses vignettes of local areas to convey a sense of the people at the destinations. Please note that the entire border of the poster is printed using gold metallic ink which is quite dramatic. That gold ink is much more even in tone than as visible in the photo.
