Genuine 1936 London Transport Poster Greenwich Reach Chas Pears Vintage Railway For Sale

Genuine 1936 London Transport Poster Greenwich Reach Chas Pears Vintage Railway

This genuine 1936 London Underground advertising poster measures 632mm (24.75'') x 1015mm (40'') and is titled " Greenwich Reach ". It was printed by " Johnson, Riddle & Co Ltd London SE1 " (text bottom right) and " Drawn on Six Stones by Chas Pears R.O.I " (text below the image). Charles Pears (1873- 1958 ) was a famous travel poster illustrator and examples of his work can be found in major institutions and have sold recently very well at Christies London Transport sale. This image of a Thames barge sailing up the Thames with a steamer and Greenwich in the background and instructions to the nearest station listed below is particularly evocative of the changing world of the 1930's. I have taken 7 photos to show the condition of the poster as it has obviously been folded and pinned up on a notice board with the resultant fold marks,discolouration, tears and pin holes, the image is still vibrant and in good condition with a couple of holes along the bottom edge (photo2). I am sure this would be well worth some professional restoration as genuine 1930's transport posters are extremely hard to find and this would make a fantastic decorative piece.
This is one of 3 similar posters I am selling this week and any additional posters will be posted at no additional cost.
International buyers are always welcome to this sale. F.M.O.C. Postage outside the United Kingdom is at cost please contact me for a quote. Due to the recent large increase in UK postage rates I am happy for international buyers to arrange their own collection and domestic buyers to collect in person. Most international postage rates are listed as NOT signed for and NOT insured so if you require either please let me know and I will add it to your invoice. Sadly due to Italy terrible postage system I will always add £5.15 to the postage charge for signed for to ensure it reaches the customer. If the item is listed as " Signed for " on the postage then obviously it is already included. If you have any questions please do contact me. All our items are extremely well packed to save them from damage in transit. If you are not happy with this article based on the information I have provided I will always happily refund minus the cost of any postage. All purchases must be piad for within 3 days of the end of the sale unless agreed otherwise.
