"In America, the years after World War II were ones of dizzying possibility, an ideal time for a publication whose raison d’etre was to offer armchair access to locales that were now accessible to the masses. Transcontinental flight was beginning to boom. So were ever more luxurious hotels, tour groups, vacation packages, and travel agents. And color photography was everywhere ascendant, allowing travelers to share shots of their excursions with envious friends. ‘It was a peacetime world,’ says Roger Angell. ‘And you could see that all of these places that we had become aware of in horrific circumstances were now peacetime places that you wanted to go.’"
- Michael Callahan on travel magazine Holiday, “A Holiday For the Jet Set,” Vanity Fair
