Original 1965 promotional travel poster designed by Colin Hughes for British Transport, UK.
The poster shows a wonderful scene of Whitby. Whitby is a seaside town, port and civil parish in the Borough of Scarborough and English county of North Yorkshire
The poster is good condition and has been produced on light/medium weight paper which is rough to the back and smooth to the front, this is a first edition offset lithograph, the colors are bright and vibrant, the edges do show signs of age, they are quite worn and there are tiny tears from years of being rolled, especially near the bottom, (See photos), there are also some creases to the paper, in the large turquoise area of the sea. to the back there is very light damage where small pieces of tape were stuck to the paper, this is unnoticeable on the front. But this is an amazing travel poster, and simply sums up the style of Britain in the 1960's.
50.5cm wide by 76.5cm long.
First edition colour offset lithograph.
