Southshore Posters

Local Color Gallery has an extensive collection of South Shore travel posters.
We are especially proud of the Blossomtime in Michigan by Shore Line Motor Coaches poster. It was originally printed in 1927, and is now distributed by Local Color Gallery.

The posters are described as being commercial illustrations. Artist’s paintings were used to sell products and services.

At one time the South Shore connected with the Shore Line Motor Coaches to take passengers from the trains to other destinations in the tri-state area. Some of these destinations were in Michigan. Blossomtime in Michigan is a rare example of these travel posters.
