National Airlines was a United States airline that operated from 1934 to 1980. It was founded in 1934 by George T. Baker in St. Petersburg, Florida. For most of its existence the company was headquartered at Miami International Airport, Florida. At its height in the late 1960’s and 1970’s,, National Airlines had a network of "Coast-to-Coast-to-Coast" flights, linking Florida and the Gulf Coast with cities along the East Coast and large cities on the West Coast. From 1970 to 1978, National, Pan American World Airways (Pan Am) and Trans World Airlines (TWA) were the only U.S. airlines that operated scheduled passenger flights to Europe. In January 1980, National Airlines was acquired by Pan Am and its routes and equipment were integrated into the Pan Am structure and National ceased to exist.

The artist Bill Simon created a series of lushly colored and detailed posters in the 1960’s for National Airlines featuring the various destinations that the airline reached. Unfortunately there is no further information available on Bill Simon. This particular poster was created to show a classic scene of tourists visiting the Roman Forum site which is adjacent to the Colisseum.

  • 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.
