Vintage Travel Posters - part 6

Travel posters are an ever-popular aspect of graphic design. I thought I would feature a broad spectrum of posters from the first half of the C20th, the golden age of the travel poster probably being associated with the 1920s and 1930s with posters by artists like Roger Broders, featuring sunny Mediterranean scenes.

This is part 6 of an 8 - part post on vintage travel posters. For earlier works see parts 1 - 5 also.

Note: From here on in (parts 6 - 8) I do not have dates for the posters, so they are listed in alphabetical rather than date order.
