3-1/2" x 5-1/2 postcard," sepia in color. This postcard celebrates the 100th Anniversary of Railway Express. The Railway Express Agency (REA), founded as the American Railway Express Agency and later renamed the American Railway Express Inc., was a national package delivery service that operated in the United States from 1918 to 1975. "This dramatic painting by a famous artist pictures the 100 colorful years of express service. It contrasts yesterday's romantic Pony Express, the rumbling Overland Stage and quaint "Iron Horse" with today's mighty express trains and super-swift planes that carry the goods to the nations from coast to coast, border to border." Very light wear to edges.
