Going Somewhere? Rare and Important Travel Posters Sold at Auction

Swann Galleries held a Rare and Important Travel Posters auction on Nov. 14.

Leading the sale was one of three Edward M. Eggleston designs for the Pennsylvania Railroad promoting travel to Atlantic City. The circa 1935 image, which captures the magnificent hotels along the boardwalk, including the recognizable Chalfonte, Marlborough-Blenheim and the Traymore, sold to an institution for $16,250. 

Here are a few posters from this sale.
