Description: BEN NASON (1915-?) THE BERKSHIRES / THE NEW HAVEN RAILROAD. 1942.
42x28 inches, 106 3/4x71 cm.
Condition A- / B+: tears and abrasions at top edge, slightly into image; minor tears and creases in margins; small stain in right margin and lower image. Paper.
One in a series of seven posters issued by the New Haven Railroad after the Second World War promoting New England vacation travel, this one features strong trees, luscious green grass and bucolic villages of New England. "During World War Two, heavy military traffic demands forced New Haven to actively discourage civilians from riding its trains for non-essential purposes. Once the war ended, however, the New Haven railroad set out to recapture the New England vacation travel business with large scale purchases of new passenger equipment and an unprecedented mass marketing campaign" (www.nhrta.org/htdocs/images1199.htm). MoMA 100.1944.
