In 1940, the New York World's Fair 1939 site was reopened using many of the buildings to once again encourage people to come and view the way of the future. In this image by Stanley Ekman, we see the members of the family using many ways of getting to the Fair quickly to enjoy their visit. The admission price of 50 cents was all it took to enjoy the Fair.

This is a scarce version of this poster, showing the sponsor New York Central. Tracing its roots as a company back to the mid 1800’s, the New Central Lines primarily serviced the New York to Boston corridor as well the Chicago to St. Louis routes. The line merged with the Pennsylvania Railroad to form the Penn Central Lines in 1968.

Stanley Ekman (1913-1998) was an American illustrator and painter. He began his career in the 1930's after attending the Art Institute of Chicago. He designed the logo for American Airlines, and was an active illustrator for major magazines including the Saturday Evening Post. He was versatile as an illustrator and created artworks in the realist style of Norman Rockwell, as well as a cartoon inspired style indicative of mid-century advertising.

  • 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.
