India, c. 1952<br />
<br />
Beautiful posters from the halcyon days of travel up for auction.<br />
<br />
Scarce vintage travel posters that hark back to the halcyon days of travel across the globe in the 1930s are tipped to sell for £50,000.<br />
<br />
The fine collection of over 100 works of art were used to advertise dream holiday destinations in far-flung places and the luxurious ways of reaching them.<br />
<br />
Most of the advertising posters date back to the 1920s and 1930s and are Art Deco in style.<br />
<br />
They are a celebration of the various modes of transport used by wealthy tourists in the days before air travel and package holidays.<br />
<br />
They are being sold at London auctioneers Bloomsbury next week.
