Imperial Airways Poster - England, Egypt, India.
Imperial Airways Poster was created by C. Peckham in 1927
The wonderful poster illustrates an Egyptian man sitting on a tourist camel with a fringed saddle, watching airplane (Imperial Airways, De Havilland D.H. 66, "Hercules") flying overhead.
Imperial Airways was a British pioneer of commercial long-range air travel. The airline operated from 1924 to 1939, serving regions of Europe. Principle routes encompassing the British Empire; South Africa, India and the Far East, including Malaya and Hong Kong. The airline had a partnership with Qantas in Australia.
Imperial Airways became the British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) in 1939, which then became the British European Airways (BEA) in 1974 to form what is today, British Airways.
The de Havilland DH.66 Hercules was a 1920s British seven-passenger aeroplane. The three-engine aircraft was built by de Havilland Aircraft Company at Stag Lane Aerodrome. The DH.66 was superseded by the D.H.10s and used on the RAF's airmail service, Imperial Airways used the Hercules effectively to provide long-distance service to regions far and wide. Although these cumbersome airliners were slow they paved the way for the future of air travel.
