There was a time when the world's greatest hotels from around the world  would create the most amazing luggage labels. Crazy, incredible artwork. All this took place during a glamorous era of travel- from around the 1900s to the mid-1960s - to such exotic locales as the sun-baked beaches of Sri Lanka to Saigon watering holes. Luggage labels are now long gone. But AbeBooks has now brought together some of the most stunning examples. Many of the world's most renown hotels produced luggage labels; long, long before the age of budget airlines, TSA lines, and cramped overbooked hotels. The luggage label, slapped onto a suitcase, was a form of advertising for the establishment. So, let's rejoice in the art of luggage labels.
