  • Unbacked

    This poster is currently unbacked. At check out, you will be given the opportunity to add backing which would cost $65 and take approximately 4 weeks.

    Linen backing is the industry standard of conservation. Canvas is stretchered and a sheet of acid free barrier paper is laid down. The poster is then pasted to the acid free paper using an acid free paste. This process is fully reversible and give support to the poster. A border of linen is left around the poster and can be used by a framer to mount the poster so that nothing touches the poster itself. Backing is what we recommend for framing, and for any poster needing restoration.

  • Circa 1989 Issued by People's Daily World, New York, Printed on a heavier paper "As word filtered out Friday night that Eastern Airlines would shut, some members of its machinists union, which has been on strike since March 1989, rejoiced. Some passengers and communities served by Eastern, as well as other employees, lamented the end of a 62-year-old airline that for a time dominated the routes between the Northeast and the sun, but the strikers celebrated a victory." New York Times , January 20, 1991
