The early 1950s saw the vast expansion of air travel for consumers. This particular image was created for United Air Lines by Stan Galli in his modernist style that is so well regarded even 60 years later. In this image we are shown the almost magical view from the windows in the crown of the Statue of Liberty in New Yorks harbor. After climbing an internal series of steps the visitor could stand on a small railing to peer out of one of the windows at the top of Lady Liberty. This vantage point was closed after September 11, 2001 but has recently been reopened to the public.Commonly referred to as United, is a major U. Airline headquartered in Chicago, Illinois. It is the world's third-largest airline when measured by revenue, after American Airlines and Delta Air Lines. United operates a large domestic and international route network, with an extensive presence in the Asia-Pacific region. United is a founding member of Star Alliance, the world's largest airline alliance. United was founded in 1926 as Varney Air Lines and was later known as United Air Lines (UAL). Just prior to the use of the United Airlines name, The Boeing Company operated a predecessor airline. Stan Galli (1912 2009) was a well-known illustrator and painter who devoted the majority of his career to advertising art of all sorts. Galli's art hangs in the Pentagon, the Baseball Hall of Fame and other places of note; his work has been shown at the Smithsonian Institution, the New York Historical Society and the Grand Central Gallery in New York.
