Imperial Airways luggage tag - c1935

A wonderful survivor - and it is likely this tag was collected by the original owner from Croydon Airport on a visit as a child. Imperial had a strong sense of corporate identity and high quality advertising, befitting a company that dealt in high-end markets, given the cost of pre-war flying. The use of the bold 'Speedbird' logo is very striking.
