Luggage labels are fascinating bits of hotel history from the golden age of travel, roughly the 1900′s to 1950′s. At that time, luggage labels were fashionable, and as traveling was privilege of wealthy middle classes, having this kind of label on your suitcase will show your status in society too. The baggage labels are therefore prestigious icons, proof, advertising and reference. They show the hotel name and logo, efficient porters, typical landscapes, important monuments cited in guide books.

Apart from color and graphics, which mirror the grand-hotel style, they represent a real cross-section of travel history, just before popularization and standardization of travel. This is why these labels have a story to tell.
