Condition Grade and Condition Report:
Grade: B+/B, we have had this poster conservation-backed on linen. For more details of the process please see the "Conservation" page of this website..
There is a little age discolouration, but not too bad as the colours are still bright, and the white within the image is still very much white. There is a slight vertical stripe near the left side probably due to some previous storage (maybe under carpet), a small water stain at the far bottom, and a couple of small restored paper losses at the top and bottom edges. More detailed photos are available on request if required.
