Baggage Stickers. Baggage stickers were issued by railroads to be attached to passengers' luggage, basically as a promotional item. The passenger got a memento of the trip, and the railroad got a bit of free advertising. Many railroad baggage stickers were quite colorful, but few rivaled the brilliant colors of the Milwaukee Road' s Olympian Hiawatha stickers. This example features one of their Fairbanks Morse "Erie Built" diesel locomotives, resplendent with stainless steel nose panels. The sticker likely dates to the late1940's or early 1950's.
