Class it up with some Lady Baltimore Luggage.

Who's the glamorous traveler with the beautiful luggage? Like you have to ask? It's moi sporting my Lady Baltimore luggage just like America's best dressed women Ginger Rogers, Dana Wynter, Jane Powell and Cyd Charisse in this 1965 print ad. A real lady wouldn't be caught dead walking the Pan Am corridor with anything less than her powder pink Overnight case (only $12.95!) Just throw on your fur coat, snappy suit and coordinate with your best fashion luggage, ladies. It's the only way to travel! If you don't believe me, read it for yourself:

Who's the glamorous traveler with the beautiul luggage? It's you - on a weekend, long holiday or business jaunt - and your flattering Lady Baltimore, of course. You find this is luggage with a luxury look... but a common sense price. you satisfy your fashion flair with plushly lined interiors, polshed brass trim. you display your individuality by choosing from seven rich colors. And you see the practicality of washable vinyl covering that shuns scuffs and stains on luggage that weights little, wears long... and comes in nine sizes for every travelling ned. For FREE illustrated brochure and name of the Lady Baltimore dealer in your area, write: The Baltimore Luggage Company, Dept. 19, Baltimore 23, MD. A division of Botany Industries.

 The ad above is a combination of several other ads the company ran featuring various starlets casually oozing glamour at the airport.  Here's the 1959 ad featuring big screen legend Ginger Rogers perched on her powder blue set styled flawlessly with dainty white gloves, an armful of flowers and a matching fur coat. Just like a lady.
