Nuclear Rocketship (1959)


I take a lot of pride in providing material you can't find anywhere else on the internet. But there's an easy way to tell when I'm having a busy week: I steal images from the website Plan59.

Still beautiful though, ain't it?

This illustration is by Frank Tinsley from 1959. The image appeared as part of a series of ads in Fortune magazine for the American Bosch Arma Corporation.

Spaceport of the Future (1957)


For those of you who haven't yet checked out Plan59, I highly recommend it. The site has some amazing images of the paleo-future such as this Spaceport of the Future, as well as other vintage ephemera.

I know I've seen this image somewhere but I can't place it. Any idea where this image was originally used? I almost want to say that it has a Ford Motor Company connection.
