Exceptional Canadian poster from 1925 which promotes Canada in order to get more immigrants to the big country. The slogan “The right country for the right man” was used on at least three different Canadian national railroad posters in the 1920s, each promoting the magnificent land as a fertile land ripe for agriculture. This work is based on a photograph of the Prince of Wales (the young King Edward VIII) during a trip to Canada in 1923, where Hed came riding on Bar U Range Ranch.
The stand is really good, without significant wear and tear apart from slightly smaller folds, which will be smoothed out when the poster comes in a frame. This poster cannot be purchased anywhere else in the world at the time of writing, and will probably never be seen in such good condition again.
The value of the poster is increased by being a train poster with a royal element, which is exceptionally beautiful in its colors. Another technique was used back in the 1920s to make posters. This poster is an experience.
Frame is not included in the price. We recommend that you buy a frame with museum glass, which optimally protects against UV, so you can preserve the poster’s colors and value.
