Product information

Vintage poster produced by Victorian Railways c1935 to promote travel to Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale in Melbourne, Victoria. ‘Freedom in the Sun and Surf’ is illustrated by people enjoying the sandy Back beach and seaside with Queenscliff White Lighthouse prominent in the background. The artist Percy Trompf (1902-1964) was born in Victoria, Australia and began his commercial artistic career designing confectionery packaging. He also designed thousands of advertising posters but the widespread recognition of his posters for the Australian National Travel Association and the Victorian Government Railway is probably what he is most known for. His bright, colourful, optimistic pictures had wide appeal, especially during the Depression and in the 1930s his posters attracted lots of attention overseas.

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