I haven’t posted a Capital Airlines ad since the days I was on Tumblr. However, I have seen many. I continue to be amazed that almost all of their ads featuring women portrayed them as being strong and independent or even as business leaders…quite unusual for the 1950’s. I’m not certain what inspired that but it is certainly commendable. Sadly, Capital did not last much past the 50’s as it merged with United Airlines in 1961.
