Beautiful posters from the halcyon days of travel up for auction.
Scarce vintage travel posters promoting holidays across the globe in the 1920's and 30's are tipped to sell for over £200,000 .
The fine collection of 200 works of art that hark back to the halcyon days of train and boat travel have been brought together for sale.
The posters were used to advertise dream holiday destinations in far-flung places such as the US and Australia and to celebrate the luxurious ways of getting to them.
Most of the advertising posters date back to the 1930s and are Art Deco in style and they are all from the original print-run.
