TWA Ambassador Class, St. Louis In-Flight Menu Art 1970s
This beautiful image of St Louis was created by the influential American artist David Klein, who produced posters for Broadway theatre productions, Hollywood films, the US Army and various corporate clients.
"St. Louis, the Gateway to the West" and jumping off point for the pioneers, is one stop on TWA's worldwide routes. This magnificent stainless steel arch, rising to a height of 630 feet, was designed by the famous Eero Saarinen. After an elevator ride to the apex, one beholds a magnificent view of the Mississippi and Missouri rivers, Metropolitan St. Louis, and beautiful Forest Park with its noted zoo. During the summer, musicals are presented in the open-air Muney Opera ... a must while visiting this delightful city."
Trans World Airlines (TWA) was a major American airline that existed from 1930 until 2001. It was formed as Transcontinental & Western Air to operate a route from New York City to Los Angeles via St. Louis, Kansas City, and other stops, with Ford Trimotors. With American, United, and Eastern, it was one of the "Big Four" domestic airlines in the United States.
