Print: Offset poster
Dimensions: 27 x 41.9 in (68.5 x 106.5 cm)
Condition: Good condition - handling/usage signs and small tears (mainly on the white outline) and a small piece of the upper left corner is missing - please see pictures. I believe that a frame will cover most of the imperfections.
Here is a great poster displaying the beautiful cityscape of London - without any tall buildings to block the horizon.
I believe the poster was made to promote London as a turist destination by showing iconic buildings as Big Ben, River Thames and Westminster.
Photographic travel posters like this one was made to put on display in tourist offices to promote certain destinations. People would then look at the posters to seek inspiration on a certain destination.
The purpose of the posters was a one-time use and when a new poster was made or when the tourist office started promoting another destination, the poster was thrown away. This is why only a limited number of these poster exists today.
Overall this poster is quite interesting as it gives the spectator a glimpse back 50 years to a time when the psychical appearance of London was completely different.
Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
