This wonderful image, dated 1927, was a promotion for American Railway Express trains. The poster features a speeding streamliner train, imposed over a profile of a winged Mercury. Printed from graphics by artist Robert E. Lee, the image is colorful and bold. We have framed the poster in a complimentary antique silver lacquered wooden frame. There is appropriate age wear to the image, but do not distract from the overall impact.
