The travel industry has depended on striking visual images on posters to attract customers for decades. This display draws on Tacoma Public Library's large collection of travel posters to tell a small part of that story. Railroad companies, ship cruise lines, and national travel agencies competed with each other to attract American tourists to Europe, Asia, and America's western states.
