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 see a typical California beauty with her pale blonde hair covered in shadows from the palm trees. What a wonderful invitation to join her! This image was so well liked that it was used at least twice (with variations) in later years by United Air Lines as well as by Orbitz Travel.

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.

Stan Galli (1912 - 2009) was a well-known illustrator and painter who devoted the majority of his career to advertising art of all sorts.
