Advertising Stickers

May 1st, 2001

The New Haven Railroad distributed a number of stickers during the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s which were used for advertising and promotional purposes. All stickers from the collection of Marc Frattasio.

1930s Sticker 1The New Haven issued at least three different stamp sized advertising stickers during the mid to late 1930s. It appears that these stickers were intended for use on mail.

Here is another of the New Haven's stamp sized advertising stickers. The 'Portrait of a Man' theme was very commonly used by the New Haven on advertising material printed during the mid to late 1930s.1930s Sticker 2

1930s Sticker 3This stamp sized advertising sticker was used to publicize the New Haven's discounted fares for children who were between 5 and 12 years of age. Children under 5 were carried free of charge on the New Haven.

This sticker features a passenger train pulled by an Alco/GE DL-109 diesel locomotive. The sticker dates from 1946 and was the result of a suggestion from a New Haven employee.1946 Sticker
