In the early 30s, Edward Eggleston produced what is considered the best series of posters for the Pennsylvania Railroad, with the most spectacular ones featuring Atlantic City. The conservative rail line surprisingly gave Eggleston the freedom to show off the famous Boardwalk with luscious young ladies on the beach by day and night.

Eggleston's striking beauties are highlighted by a rich color palette and fabulous architectural settings which create an idyllic world somewhat akin to a Hollywood stage set. Indeed, Atlantic City was in its heyday during the Depression, when a weary public needed an escape to a more perfect world - either of celluloid or sunshine.
