Good condition - light wear/minor and smaller tears on the edges, minor paper loss in the upper left corner, a small crack in the top and light handling signs - please see pictures. I am sure that a frame will cover most of the imperfections.

A beautiful and hard-to-find mid-century travel poster advertising historical and beautiful country of Peru.
The poster was made as an advertisement for the former airline Panagra and was made to encourage people to visit the southernmost country in Central America. Panagra flew to various destinations in Latin America from Los Angeles, Miami, New York City and San Francisco. The airline ceased to exist in 1963 when the airline merged with Braniff International Airways
The poster is made as in aquarelle (water colour) and displays wonderful glimpse into the Peruvian street life. In the center is a gate (which could be a part of a city wall) and behind the gate is an old colonial church. All around the street is busy locals carrying out their daily life. The gate or arc on the poster is the Arco de Santa Clara located in Cuzco. It was erected in 1835 to celebrate the Confederation Peru-Bolivia. The Confederation lasted until 1839 when the two countries became independent nations.
Overall a beautiful and detail rich travel poster from the heydays of the airliner posters.
