Thanks a lot ! Glad you liked the picture. This is the very image that made me "wordly famous", since Wikipedia chose it to illustrate the entries for "Dieselpunk" : [link] and "Retrofuturism" : [link] Oh well... !
I used to have an metal sign that was a promotion for the old streamline trains that looked like this. In the US they were called Burlington Flyers I think. Eventually I sold the sign so I don't have it any more.
Not a thing but a great book tying into the age is 1939: The Lost World of the Fair. It's about the 1939 World's Fair in NYC -- which both of my parents went to as children. (My dad still has the pin showing the Tryon and Perisphere.) The book intercuts a fictional (but true-to-life) story with a non-fiction analysis of the zeitgeist of the time -- architecture, social ideas, dreams for the future, etc. Really amazing book.
