    This poster is currently unbacked. At check out, you will be given the opportunity to add backing which would cost $145 and take approximately 6-8 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 gives 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.

  • Piedmont’s arrival in Dayton, Ohio in 1982 was wholly unconventional. In the midst of a recession, the city paid $15 million on facilities to welcome the new airline on a trial basis—Piedmont could end their 10-year lease if they weren’t successful. But they were, in fact, successful. Having a hub in Dayton let them extend service to other Midwestern cities with limited air service; according to an article in the New York Times, Piedmont grew faster than any other carrier in the nation except Southwest.
