A very significant, and rare, early skiing poster advertising rail travel from England to continental resorts. Thought to be a unique survivor, this pre-First World War design features an intrepid skier wearing contemporary Alpine sports-wear (Tweed/woollen suit) with early, pointed, skis. British skiing posters from this period are extremely uncommon.
