Produced by Victorian Railways Commissioners. Printed W. M. Houston, Government Printer, Melbourne.

An anonymous yet nonetheless wonderful poster encouraging travel to Victoria. The text in the globe above highlights the 'unique' qualities of the state, from snow resorts to sheep stations. The print house W. M. Houston was responsible for a wide range of printed material for Victoria, including police manuals, Olympic reports and advertising posters.

Shelley : oh my gosh, no words to describe my absolute joy in seeing, followed by complete desperation to somehow be the proud owner of this sensational Australian travel poster. I announced to myself that if no one grabs it within the year, then it has my name on it; everything I love in poster art is right here - humour, colour, movement - I also describe my fave people as 'gems'...
