The Seaside Calls, Melbourne, Australia. Vintage Travel Poster by Percy Trompf

Product code: XS-610

Product information

Travel poster produced c1935 by Victorian Railways to help encourage visitors to Melbourne. A young lady fashionably clothed in a white summer dress and matching bonnet sits with her back to us looking out upon a clear blue sky admiring the seagulls. Definitely time to ‘Take a Kodak’. 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.
