Discover Hong Kong via Japan Air Lines

Photographic poster of a Chinese woman on a Hong Kong boat, a theme that Japan Airlines would use repeatedly in the 1960's. In this poster, the model is on a fishing junk; to her side are nets hanging to dry, intended to inform the airline's Japanese clientele of the freshness of Hong Kong seafood. The aircraft silhouette is of a MacDonlad Douglas DC7-C which entered service with JAL in 1958.
