circa 1930
Grade: A-/B+, Very Good. Linenbacked. Creasing at bottom left corner and chipped bottom right corner.

Issued by the North Western Railway in what is today Pakistan, this poster promotes Lahore as a visitor destination through December for a wide variety of activities. The images shows horses racing, but the poster also encourages visits for Polo, Cricket, Tennis, Dacing and Other Festivities.


Note that the poster is backed but the linen has been trimmed to the edges of the poster. There is also a small paper (a 'snipe') pasted onto the date at the bottom of the poster stating 'Dec. 13'. This is original and most likely the posters were printed with the wrong promotion launch date and this had to be corrected before the posters were distributed.
