Genre: Travel / Tourism
Title:  Wales: Llanberis Pass From Snowdon
Year:  c. 1920’s~30’s
Artist:  Val Doone
Size (cm): 50.8 x 76.2
Country of origin: U.K.

A Val Doone photo produced as a tourism poster for the Travel & Industrial Development Association (TIDA).

These images were used extensively by TIDA in overseas promotional campaigns up until 1945. Not all the resulting posters were produced to such a high standard as this, which I believe is an example of photograuve printing. Although it is undated, the high quality of the print, the font used in the lettering and the TIDA production information strongly suggest this poster dates from the 1932~39 period.

The poster is in generally good condition, the image is crisp and sharp. There is a obvious fold towards the upper edge and some areas of loss, nicks and tearing along all the edges. These are consistent with a poster this age, are largely superficial and do not intrude into the main image – they would be hidden once framed under a mount. As always, further images available on request.
