We love old labels - particularly old circular gummed labels - with water-activated adhesive. These wonderful labels were created for the United States Travel Line back in the 1940s. This was a luxury line that offered many a transatlantic ocean voyage in the elegant 1940s and 1950s.
Tourist class was the lowest class of accommodations on a cruse ship - but that didn't matter - one was still able to travel abroad! So, these were quite special labels. The letter in the center of the eagle's shield varies. We have a limited variety and the photo is an example.

(Although these could be licked to activate, we are not really sure of their absolute source or age, so we suggest you use a damp sponge to activate the adhesive - or, better yet, use an additional paper glue.)
Each label reads:
UNITED STATESLINESTOURIST CLASS
How perfect for your travel collage! We've seen these on eBay and elsewhere for much more!
