I saw this at an antique shop and asked for it for my birthday. I know nothing about it so any help would be greatly appreciated! This is all hand done on tissue paper.
The title reads "TISSUE LAYOUT FOR POSTERS" done in pencil.
These are individual posters, very delicate, drawn in pencil, colored in with pastels?.
There are 3 different poster versions of "US to ASIA via HAWAII"
and 2 versions of "2 DAYS TO CHINA VIA HAWAII"
On all the prints is the name 'FRISCO AIR LINES'.
There is also the phrase "FLY THE CLIPPER WAY".
This is all I could find. My theory is this is associated with
"THE CHINA CLIPPER" airplanes that were affiliated with SAN FRANCISCO airlines in the 30's. Hence the name "FRISCO AIR LINES". The planes are identical to the ones on my poster. They also flew to Hawaii. I beleive this was possible advertising artwork mock ups for these flights.
This was all I could gather, but any aviation aficionado may be able to help!
There is no signature and I am at a loss. Any info or thoughts would help:)
