The stunning aerial view captures various sailing vessels just off the coastline with a Spartan Cruiser III aeroplane making its descent. Spartan Air Lines Ltd was a British private airline company, in the period 1933-1935. It started operating passenger services from the London area to the Isle of Wight in collaboration with Railway Air Services. In late 1935 it merged with United Airways to form British Airways Ltd. Artwork by Charles Pears (1873-1958), a marine painter in oil who was an Official Naval Artist during the World Wars. He worked as a poster artist for rail companies and other clients and was also a book illustrator.

This is truly an outstanding quality poster. It is printed on Fuji crystal archive photographic paper and is by no means a flimsy poster.
