Suitcase-type Labels from Hotels, Shipping Lines and Airline

Post by bazza4338 »

I have a small collection of labels that you used to see stuck onto the suitcases of international travellers.

Hotels, Shipping Lines and Airlines.

Is there somewhere on this web site where I can post images - ephemera - or is this not appropriate?

Thanks Glenn

Will scan and send tonight/tomorrow.

Bygone days

Probably from the 1950's I think from my well-travelled uncle.

Much like you!

Suitcase-type Labels from Hotels, Shipping Lines and Airline

Post by bazza4338 »

A small collection of suitcase labels collected by my late uncle Frank Sydney Preacher - former Mayor of Manly NSW - born 1910 - an accountant who travelled the world for maybe 30 years during his quiet business time - May and June - prior to the end of the Financial Year ending 30th. June.

Apparently he went to every country in the world - travelled third class where possible to meet the "real" people - except Antarctica and another country which escapes my memory.

Spoke Esperanto and met many fellow speakers on his travels.

I remember him saying that he paid A$1.00 for a bottle of Coca Cola - his only vice - in the 1960's in Indonesia when the going rate was maybe 20 cents.

Travelled with a very small suitcase that contained one set of clean underwear and shirt, toothbrush and shaving gear.

He also left Indonesia in the early hours of the morning - 5:00am - at the start of the conflict with Malaysia in the early 1960's.

Got stuck between Valdivostok and Japan on a ferry when he didn't have a visa to enter Japan. Thought he'd become a stateless person. No re-entry visa to Russia.

Travelled the Trans Siberian Railway four times in a carriage all to himself. The authorities woiuldn't let him mix with the locals nor let him off at the stations.

Was one of the first - he said - Westerners allowed to travel freely in China.

Reported his China travels on ABC radio in the early 1960's.

Would come down to Melbourne for Christmas and we three nephews used to beg him to take out his false teeth!

Fits of laughter all around!

Tasman Empire Airways Limited

Tasman Empire Airways Limited (TEAL) was the forerunner of Air New Zealand. It was first registered in Wellington as a limited liability company on 26 April 1940. The shares were originally held by the New Zealand government (20%), Union Airways (19%), BOAC (38%) and Qantas (23%).

The inaugural service, from Auckland to Sydney on 30 April of that year, was flown by one of its two Short S30 flying boats. The first four months of operation saw a weekly return service between Auckland and Sydney. This was expanded to thrice fortnightly with connections to San Francisco using Pan Am flights from Auckland (Pan Am was not flying into Australia).

In the first year, the annual report revealed that 130 trans-Tasman flights had been completed carrying 1461 passengers for a profit, prior to tax and dividends, of NZ£31 479.

By 1944, the trans-Tasman frequency had increased to three weekly return flights.

After World War II shareholding passed to equal ownership by the governments of New Zealand and Australia. Four Short Sandringhams and later Short Solents were acquired, as well as an ex-Royal New Zealand Air Force PBY Catalina for survey flights.

The airline changed to Air New Zealand (its present name) on 1 April 1965 at the same time as Douglas DC-8s entered service. TEAL's TE flight code carried over to Air New Zealand, which continued to use it for its international routes until 1989. Then its international flights began using the NZ code that belonged to NAC and had been used for that carrier's domestic flights.

Raffles Hotel, Singapore

From Google:-

Raffles Hotel (Chinese: 莱佛士酒店) is a colonial-style hotel in Singapore, dating from 1887, and named after Singapore's founder Sir Stamford Raffles.

The hotel was founded by the four Armenian Sarkies Brothers (Martin, Tigran, Aviet, and Arshak Sarkies). They opened the 10-room colonial bungalow at Beach Road and Bras Basah Road owned by an Arab trader and philanthropist Syed Mohamed Alsagoff on 1 December 1887. Alsagoff developed the site of his late father's estate until it became the most modern building in Singapore at the time. Sarkies was a tenant on favourable short-term lease. The original location was by the seaside, although continued reclamation means that the site is presently some 500 metres away from the shore.[1] No Asians were permitted as hotel guests until the 1930s.[1] Designed by architect Regent Alfred John Bidwell of Swan and Maclaren, the current main building of Raffles Hotel was completed in 1899.[2] The hotel continued to expand over the years with the addition of wings, a verandah, a ballroom, a bar and billiards room, and further buildings and rooms. The Great Depression spelled trouble for Raffles Hotel and, in 1931, the hotel went into receivership. In 1933, however, the financial troubles were resolved and a public company called Raffles Hotel Ltd was established.

Re: WTA (unknown)

I found these choices
- some closer to the mark than others:-

World Travel Agency
Wisconsin Trapshooters Association (don't think so)
Werewolf the Apocalypse (definitely not)
Womens Tennis Association
Wisconsin Tibetan Association (landlocked, isn't it?)
Water Transit Authority (maybe)
WITHHOLDING TAX ALLOWANCE (No)
World Twirling Association (Another maybe - or not)
Warrior Training Alliance (Could be)
Warrant to Apprehend (hope not)
Win a Trip to Antarctica (This one?)
World Toilet Association (Singapore) (Nope!)
