India, c. 1952
Beautiful posters from the halcyon days of travel up for auction.
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.
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.
Most of the advertising posters date back to the 1920s and 1930s and are Art Deco in style.
They are a celebration of the various modes of transport used by wealthy tourists in the days before air travel and package holidays.
They are being sold at London auctioneers Bloomsbury next week.
