Lot 103 : Carnival & Fun Fair Poster
We sold this lot for £110 in November 2018

Original 1940s poster by Willson's printers of Leicester. Very rare "1,000 smiles per hour" ghost train design version in portrait format. Willson's supplied these posters to showmen with a blank section top & bottom for them to overprint with details of a specific event. This one has been used by the well known amusement caterers T Benson & Sons to promote Woodingdean Carnival, probably early 1950s. In excellent condition, no fading or tears and the colours are bright and vibrant.
