Art Deco & Poirot

One of the many things I love about the Agatha Christie Poirot TV series is the wonderful pervasive Art Deco feel. So I was tickled to see an Art Deco exhibit at the San Francisco Airport United terminal. They've has some super interesting exhibits ranging from Speed Racer to the History of Polio. Right now it's full of art deco fabulousness. The airplane models above and below are actually drink shakers. 

Here are a few relics from way back when smoking was cool. 

And here are just some fun things from World's Fairs and such.

World's Fair compacts. Aren't they beautiful and so very gold?

And here we have the sort of train cases that would have been carried on the Orient Express while Poirot was board. Can you hear the train whistle? 

Picnic anyone?

And you absolutely must have the proper accessories...

  1. Oh that is such a fabulous exhibit. I also love the art deco flair to the Poirot mysteries. It was such a fascinating time, and don't even get me started on how much I love traveling by train.
