I've always liked these posters but since TV broadcast in Spain for "American Restoration," "Auction Hunters" and other similar series, I like even more, are the vestiges of the era in which graphic design and graphics in general were considered art, not like now, all digital and no personality.

I completely agree with you! Digital perfection can be beautiful, but is lacking the warmth of human touch. Similar to the difference between the sound of vinyl records vs. CDs. Well, now I've revealed that I'm quite old! Lol! Anyway, I would love to own the Topper sign and put it on my wall. :D

I am an eater of documentaries and today I saw an episode of American Restoration repaired where a tricycle in 1947 and a small motorboat of children, as Rick says "when things were made to last" is true. Tonight however I have seen in National Geographic special on the Titanic and Cameron, I was fascinated, however that was built to last and did not trip the first inauguration, how sad ...

Oh dear, that's so true! I read that there was a lot of fraud - or at least mishandling - of the building of the Titanic. Thanks for your comment, Gato!

Today I saw another program on the construction of the boat but did not mention anything about it, in fact have left the reputation of the shipyards of Belfast at the top but in another program I saw recently who believe that the rivets in the hull fore, right where the iceberg struck, were of poor quality, that attached to a coal strike forced to collect coal from other company ships to sail for New York (had to stow bad coal) and other failures own design of pride and anxiety to be "more" than all the competition that lack of technology made ​​this boat a disaster, a terrible disaster of course, 1,500 people whose greatest sin was being in the wrong place and time attested it 100 years ago. Sad ...

Oh yes, that's the story, thank you for reminding me! I remember it now that you tell it again. Best regards, D.

In the report are details like that under a vegetation grown in the soil are probably rivets from the Titanic were obviously full of rust but certainly at that time. When you go to Ireland to visit these ruins of the shipyard, will a few thousand photos, lol

Ha! I won't be going to Ireland anytime soon. (I wish!)

Gato Land on May 5, 2012

Well, me neither to my dismay, the trips are very expensive, is cheaper to go to USA to Ireland, is something I do not understand, just the distance should not be so but... I hope to go one day, the Irish and Spanish have two things that unite us, we are Catholics and our ancestors fought together against the English, we have very good feeling between the two nations.

I did not know that!!! :O

Yes, there are many ties that bind us, many more than the British, who have been enemies and allies in different periods of history.
