The Poster was created by Ronald Skate and produced for Australian National Airways (ANA) in 1945-1957.
ANA or the Australian National Airways was one of Australia’s predominant aircraft carrier services from the 1930s through to the 1950s. This poster promotes the carrier’s freight service. The first freight carried by air in Australia was on the first airmail flight in 1914, when Guillaux carried, along with the mail, a quantity of Liptons tea and some OT cordial, consigned to the Commercial Travellers? Club in Sydney.
Australian National Airways (ANA) was one of Australia’s predominant aircraft carrier services from the 1930s through to the 1950s and this poster promotes the carrier’s freight service. The Australian Government had recognised the significance of aviation before WW 2 and more than 50% of the airline passenger and freight miles accumulated were subsidised by the government through both direct subsidies and mail contracts.
