At The Docks - Today & Tomorrow Poster Series - 1962 - E.R Boyce
The Today and Tomorrow series was a collection of posters, curated by Boyce, and issued to primary schools in 1962. They are characterised by their attention to detail and bright colours and look great framed up and displayed in a modern setting.
This original, vintage print is called At The Docks and is listed under the category of Creative Activities. There's a lrage ship in dry dock in the foreground of this print with men working on it and labels to show the names of various parts. In the background a large liner is being pulled in by two tugs whilst cranes stand ready to unload other vessels. A reminder of a once common scene.
Dimensions: Overall 53cm x 43cm Image size 48cm x 38cm
There are a few classroom prints in this series that work well together. Head to the shop for for other industries and urban scenes that would work in a display with this one.
The posters have crisp, clear colours and are printed on heavy white paper. This print has been stored flat which has protected the image. There is a good margin around the image and details of the series and publisher are in the bottom corners.
They look fantastic framed up and on display in both children's and adult rooms.
