Northwest Airlines Corporation was a major United States airline founded in
1926 with headquarters in Eagan, Minnesota neat the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport. After World War II it became dominant in the trans-Pacific market with a hub in Tokyo, Japan and then used the name Northwest Orient Airlines.
Prior to its merger with Delta Airlines in 2008, Northwest was the world's sixth largest airline in terms of domestic and international scheduled passenger miles flown and the US's sixth largest airline in terms of domestic passenger miles flown. In addition to operating one of the largest domestic route networks in the U.S., Northwest carried more passengers across the Pacific Ocean (5.1 million in 2004) than any other U.S. carrier, and carried more domestic air cargo than any other American passenger airline.

This poster is one of a group that were created by an anonymous artist in the 1950's showing various important cities in the Northwest route system.
Detroit is pictured here as having a scenic waterside but also being focused on automobiles and industrial production. This is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed, and in excellent condition. We guarantee the authenticity of all of our posters.

  • 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.
