Space Age Lounge Volume 1 – Ultra Swank Living

Here is the compilation that started everything. It was actually compiled a few months before I started this website back in September 2005 and I decided to keep the name Ultra Swank for the site.

More Jet Age photos

Here are some more swank retro air travel photos. Just look at the cool interiors and colors of those Boeing 707’s and 747’s! That groovy stewardess in pink looks like she is from outer space or something. All you need now is some lush jet set airplane music to play in the background....
