LESLIE RAGAN (1897-1972)

The Scenic Route to New York's World Fair / New York Central System.
Lithographed poster, backed with Chartex, 1042x686 mm, 41x27 inches. 1939. Forbes, Boston.
An assemblage of scenic, captioned snapshots that travelers might see on a trip to New York City to visit the World's Fair, with the iconic Trylon and Perisphere prominently in the foreground. Many of the little views roughly correspond with pre-existing New York Central Line posters, while the other images were actually used on brochures published by the railroad.
