Streamline moderne is more than architecture and vehicles[edit]

I find it erroneous to discuss "influences" and use a typical streamlined toaster. I think this secion should be moved up, and the long list of examples go in the end of the article. Any other ideas on how to improve and extend this article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Carl Milles (talkcontribs) 10:59, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:ChryslerAirflowStreamliner34.jpg[edit]

The image Image:ChryslerAirflowStreamliner34.jpg is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

I have replaced the image with another image of the Chrysler Airflow John Campbell (talk) 12:43, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Image squeeze[edit]

I moved a photo of the Normandie Hotel down to 1942 where it now sits at the right side. Where it was at the left side at the top, it was squeezing the text between two images, a practice defined and discouraged at MOS:IMAGES. Thanks. Binksternet (talk) 19:41, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Sydney[edit]

There are a lot of pubs in this style in the Sydney CBD and adjacent suburbs. (And also in many other Australian cities, but there are scores of 'em in Sydney.) Might try to get some photos next time I visit the place, unless someone there does it sooner. -- 202.63.39.58 (talk) 01:19, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

The page is lacking in representation from outside the US-UK, so anything of the sort would be helpful, IMHO! Morgan Riley (talk) 00:45, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

Lockheed Vega[edit]

As an airplane it looks strange to talk about a "streamline moderne" style applied to a flying vehicle. The Lockheed Vega, as much as their contemporary planes, incorporated a significant invention in aviation, it was the NACA Cowling, intended to reduce in great levels the radial engine aerodynamic drag, so it is not exclusive of Lockheed Vega.

Furthermore, in industrial design products sometimes streamlining is cited as aesthetically inspiration from a flying vehicle. Because an airplane is "designed" for fly, it shape doesn't correspond to an art style because its pure functional but, as streamline moderne objects, it means that many of it details would be "aerodinamic" (off course!).

Maybe the Lockheed Vega is cited because someone thought that as an airplane "designed by" or "made famous by" is enough to put it in list but, it means that all (more than 40) Kelly Johnson's airplane designs for Lockheed, including the faster ever made (SR71) correspond to streamline because they had streamlined lines intended for improved airflow performance... --131.175.28.132 (talk) 15:14, 5 November 2013 (UTC)
