Archival linen backed original British travel by air antique vintage poster. B condition with restored fold marks. While many airline advertisements boast the newest model of transport, the British Overseas Airways Corporation opted to depict more humble modes of travel, underscoring that they can take you far away—Far East, that is. BOAC airline was the first to introduce passenger jets into service in 1952. This original BOAC poster was folded and has home some restoration primarily in the black area of the rigshaw. Therefore; this poster is in B condition. One of the last document sales of this poster was only the small version in 2014 and sold for 420 pounds. The price reflects the B condition; but also the much rare large format size. This Far East version for this BOAC travel poster has naturally an Asian flair with a horse drawn carriage in the center; a rigshaw being pulled by a man and paper lanterns all set on a dark baby blue background.
