Pan Am (Pan American Airlines) was founded in 1927 by Henry H. "Hap" Arnold, Carl A. Spaatz, and John H. Jouett. The company opened new travel routes to South America in the 1920’s and secured the support of Charles Lindbergh to help establish landing rights to many exotic locales. In pop culture, a Pan Am plane was used by the Beatles when they first arrived in the United States and can be seen in many of the photographs from the event. In film, Pan Am planes were featured in James Bond movies including Live and Let Die, as well as Spielberg’s 2002 film Catch Me If You Can about the true story of Frank Abagnale, Jr. who impersonated a Pan Am pilot in the 1960’s. Pan Am Airlines ceased operation in 1991
In the 1950’s the Pan American Airways Company teamed up with the South American based Panagra Airlines to offer clients trips from North America to a multitude of South American destinations. The anonymous artist cleverly shows a map of the South American continent along with small vignettes of different regions to signify the destinations. It is eye catching and effectively conveys the message of the many countries covered in the region. . This was a developing market region for Pan Am in the 1950’s and 60’s.

  • 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.
