Description: LESLIE RAGAN (1897-1972) THE 20TH CENTURY LIMITED / NEW YORK CENTRAL SYSTEM. Calendar back. 1945.
20 1/2x15 3/4 inches, 52x40 cm.
Condition B+: minor tears, creases and abrasions at edges; scuffing in text. Paper.
"The streamlined 20th Century Limited, [as depicted here] became the visual hallmark for the Central for years, appearing in calendars, advertisements, timetables, promotional photographs and brochures. The magnificent Dreyfuss-designed train offered hope to a depression-weary nation unknowingly about to enter the horrors of World War II" (New York Central System p. 65). This image often appears with the calendar cut off.
