1999 TRAINS - ALL ABOARD! #3337a Pane of 20 x 33 cent US Postage Stamps

1999 TRAINS - ALL ABOARD! #3337a Pane of 20 x 33 cent US Postage Stamps - On August 26, 1999 the USPS issued this five stamp Se-Tenant. The All Aboard stamps feature five luxury trains from America's past: the Southern Pacific Railroad Daylight; the Pennsylvania Railroad Congressional; the New York Central 20th Century Limited; the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad Hiawatha; and the Santa Fe Super Chief. During the 1930s and 1940s, before automobiles and airplanes dominated travel in the United States, these trains and others like them carried passengers in great luxury. The stamps also pay tribute to the influence of the art deco style on American industrial design. Art deco designs have smooth lines and streamlined geometric forms. The name "art deco" is derived from a 1925 decorative arts exposition held in Paris - the Exposition Internationale des Arts Dcoratifs et Industriels Modernes ( Southern Pacific Railroad Daylight, Pennsylvania Railroad Congressional, New York Central 20th Century Limited, Chicago, Milwaukee, St Paul and Pacific Railroad Hiawatha, Santa Fe Super Chief )
