Travel Tuesday in the 1930’s

If you’re finding your head in the clouds on this work day morning, we’ll give you good reason to keep it there, dreaming about the luxurious aviation of the distant past.

In the 1930’s as air travel began its ascension to the popular and most efficient route of global travel, the designs of airline interiors took a very hospitable and comforting turn. In these recent photos uncovered by The Sun, we get a glimpse of the simple pleasures that flying once offered, elegant but simple accommodations for only those who could afford such a way to travel coast to coast. Not unlike trains, there were dining passages and wicker seating to offer the ultimate feeling of paradise getaway, 38,000 feet up. Have a look for yourself as you’re whisked away into the past and high above the clouds for really elegant #TravelTuesday vibes!
