This is a fine print reproduction of a rare 1930s, poster promoting the world-renowned shopping experience that was and still is 5th avenue in Manhattan.

The illustration presents a bird's-eye view of a bustling street scene lined with American flags and buildings. The Empire State Building, designed by Shreve, Lamb & Harmon and built from 1930 to 1931 towers prominently above. "TRAVEL BY TRAIN" appears at the bottom in all capital red letters as it was still the most widely utilized method of travel, prior to the age of commercial aviation.
