Description: Canadian Pacific Airlines/Couple Artist : Anonymous The first known CPR poster was printed in 1883. Since then, thousands of brochures, posters, menus, advertisements and other items have been created to promote travel, immigration and settlement, war efforts, freight traffic and other services provided by the company. In early years, CPR sponsored artists - both well-known and emerging talent - by providing railway passes to take them to scenic locations along the line, and CPR had the option to purchase works produced from these trips. In later years, CPR commissioned artists and even employed full-time graphic artists in the company''s studio in Montreal. This poster from the early 1960''s shows how the older clientele were being courted by the airline - fresh linens, attentive service, comfortable seating - these were all selling points that CP used to its advantage in this and other posters and marketing material from the period. Historical data (from Wikipedia) about CP Airlines indicates that ''Canadian Pacific Airlines, later called Canadian Pacific Air Lines and renamed in 1968 to CP Air, was a Canadian airline that operated from 1942 to 1987. Based at Vancouver International Airport in Richmond, British Columbia, it served Canadian and international routes until it was purchased and absorbed into Canadian Airlines.'' $600 Poster measures 25 x 40 inches, is in excellent condition and is linen backed.
