If a hotel told me they would slap one of these beautiful design labels onto my luggage upon checking in, I’d probably book a room just for that reason. There’s nothing more emblematic of the golden age of travel than these scrumptious stickers that came in all shapes, sizes, colours and fonts.
They represent a time when travel was a true adventure that could take days or weeks to even reach your destination. Once you finally arrived at your hotel (which you booked by actually making a phone call or maybe sending a telegram), you had earned that luggage label and its unique design. It was a stamp on your travel diary of life; a testament to say, “I was there.”
