This item was acquired as part of a larger group of London Borough of Tower Hamlets photoprints and internegatives, all produced during the 1950s and 60s for the composition of signage artwork. Due to the copying processes used during this period, great care must be afforded to how these items are displayed; so to avoid the deterioration of graphics when exposed to sunlight over prolonged periods of time. If anyone can offer further advice on this matter, or the materials and processes used, then that would be gratefully received.
PLEASE NOTE: All the items we sell are out-of-print and original, and show signs of wear consistent with age. Posters in particular are delicate items that can easily suffer the effects of time and handling, so it is unusual to find vintage posters that are in pristine condition. The grading of posters has been kept as simple as possible. The condition of posters is ranked A to C, which include further sub-classifications of plus (+) and minus (-) in each case (e.g. A-, A, A+). Items are supplemented with a high-resolution image, and any specific/significant flaws highlighted. If in doubt, please contact me for further information.
