Extended Christmas Greetings

More Christmas joy from the BPMA, which today comes to you in the form of lovely long van posters.

vintage GPO post early poster Eric Fraser 1942

This first offering, from Eric Fraser in 1942, may well not be a Christmas poster at all, but I liked the elephants so much that it can stay anyway.

This Beaumont also has that wartime urgency a year later, and he’s still exhorting people to post early in 1947 too.

While finally, these Alick Knight robins must be the flying cousins of the skating robin I posted the other day, even though they’re from 1951 rather than 1946.

For more info about van posters, there was a discussion about them here earlier in the year, although one which wasn’t entirely conclusive. ┬áSo if you do know anything about these great posters and the vans they travelled on, please do say.
