This is a WWII era map poster showing The British Commonwealth of Nations with additional information illustrating the Forms of Government and Principal Products of the Commonwealth nations. The “Forms Of Government” section has a footnote with an asterisks indicating “Under enemy military duress August 1942” so thus a c.1942 date for this poster which isn’t otherwise dated. This poster illustrates the old adage that “the sun never sets on the British Empire” which really does touch all corners of the globe. The lower right corner indicates “Printed In England By Flemings, Leicester. 51-2578”.
This poster is professionally backed to linen. The poster showed some staining prior to restoration which has been largely mitigated through proper cleaning and conservation. Contact us for further information as needed.
