Rare vintage posters harking back to the halcyon days of travel around Britain in the 1930s have emerged for sale.<br />
<br />
The collection of posters were made for oil company Shell at a time when Brits were taking to the roads in their thousands as motoring became cheaper.<br />
<br />
They are being sold by Hugh Wickham, a former marketing manager at Shell in the 1970s and 80s, who was gifted them prior to his retirement in 1988.<br />
<br />
Mr Wickham has decided to sell his collection through London auction house Christie's in the hope of raising £17,000 to support the refurbishment of his local church in Kingston Upon Thames, Surrey.
