Luggage labels were initially adhesive tags affixed to a traveler's luggage for identification purposes, but over time, they evolved into souvenirs representing travel destinations. Typically issued by hotels, airlines, railways, and cruise companies, they gained popularity during the mid-19th century to the early 20th century, the Golden Age of Travel. This era saw the rise of mass tourism and the expansion of transportation networks, including railroads, ocean liners, and, eventually, air travel. Beyond their practical function, luggage labels served as advertisements featuring elaborate designs crafted by renowned artists, transforming them into miniature art pieces. Although their utilitarian role has waned, they remain prized ephemeral collectibles today!
