A beautiful and rare mid-century travel poster advertising one of my favorite countries in South America - Ecuador.
The poster was made as an advertisement for the former airline Panagra and was made to encourage people to visit the southernmost country in Central America. Panagra flew to various destinations in Latin America from Los Angeles, Miami, New York City and San Francisco. The airline ceased to exist in 1963 when the airline merged with Braniff International Airways
The poster displays a busy rural village somewhere in Ecuador. I believe it must a Sunday as many people are dressed up and some are flocking into the beautiful colonial cathedral. There is also a girl selling pottery, in the background is a concert and further away is a packed arena. You keep discovering details the more you look at this poster.
Overall a colorful and detail rich travel poster from the heydays of the airliner posters.
Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
