During the 1920's, the Chicago Rapid Transit Company commissioned the city's finest graphic designers to produce advertising posters that encouraged Chicagoans to use rapid transit for more than commuting to work. Noted artists including Norman Erickson, Arthur A. Johnson, Raymond Huelster, Helen Urgelles and Oscar Rabe Hanson created beautiful, and sometimes dramatic, images that beckoned people to the parks, museums, universities, and other nearby locales. Homeward Bound first appeared in 1926 and was created by Oscar Rabe Hanson. Many of these original posters are held in the collections of the Chicago History Museum. Dimensions: 24"x36.
