Peekaboo Gallery presents "Friendly Skies: The Art of High Altitude Travel," a travel exhibition and sale dedicated to the golden age of flying. Take a nostalgic look back to the time of glamorous air hostesses and gourmet meals, when one could jaunt from New York to Paris on a supersonic 3.5-hour flight while enjoying champagne and canapés to live organ accompaniment.

The gallery showcases airlines memorabilia and collectibles presented in a striking Jumbo Jet stage set. Inside, you can find original lithographs and paintings of classic travel art, and industrial and commercial aircraft models. 

For those interested in nostalgic fashion of the skies, look for vintage flight attendant uniforms from the 1940s through the 1990s, worn by crews on PAN AM, Braniff Airways, TWA, United, Eastern, British Airways, and  the Soviet Aeroflot. 

Peekaboo is a unique gallery where everything in the curated displays are for sale. It offers visitors an “unabashed celebration of that most fantastic, turbulent and innovative period in history known as the Twentieth Century.”
