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