Printed in 1969 to promote a new UK/Australia route, via New York, San Francisco, Hawaii, & Fiji, this poster contains both graphic and photographic elements: a photo of cattle ranching beneath a garland of welcoming pacific island flowers. It’s a nice poster, advertising an impossibly glamorous journey to Australia – all the sparkle of the jet set.
Whilst the body of the poster is in generally good condition bar a few areas of light dirt, the corners have sustained some age related damage. Clearly the poster has been pinned-up at some stage resulting in loss to 3 of the 4 corners. Not an ideal situation but one that could be remedied with the use of a mount when framing. Rough around the edges, a badge Australian’s wear with pride.
