Vintage Queenstown Travel Poster
Image size in millimetres: 360 x 580
"Get in the queue for Queenstown" urges this vintage New Zealand travel poster. It shows trampers looking out over Lake Wakatipu toward the Remarkables clambering through a styilised capital letter "Q" with the then small town of Queenstown below them. The title at the top of the poster reads "New Zealand: Playground of the Pacific". This was orginally a large screenprinted poster probably issued by either the NZ railways publicity branch or the quaintly named "Department of Tourist and Health Resorts" in the early part of the 20th century. This poster has been reproduced close to the original large size using extremely lightfast inks on superb photo-realistic paper.
