Chicago: The Vacation City I Poster by Proehl

One in a series of transit posters originally printed in 1925, this poster features an image by Paul Proehl that was created to advertise the Illinois Central Railroad. The portrayal of sunbathers enjoying a beautiful summer day on Chicago's North Avenue Beach against the backdrop of the magnificent skyline emphasizes the motto: " Chicago: The Vacation City." Poster size is 24x36, printed on heavy, smooth white paper stock. It will come to you rolled up in a tube and the tube inside a rectangular cardboard shipping carton to prevent any transit damage.
