This wonderful Mid-century poster was produced for the Tourist Traffic Branch of the Indian Ministry of Transportation and offers a colorful scene at the city of Banaras on the banks of Ganges River in the Subcontinent’s most populous state of Uttar Pradesh.  Local men and women congregate on the Ghats or steps to the River Ganges and engage in leisure or their daily chores.  The Shikhara towers rising from this ancient and sacred city’s temples appear across the skyline.  The lower margin is printed “A.C. 346 - English – 20,000” and indicates the poster was printed in India by M/S New Jack Printing Works Ltd of Bombay.

This vintage original poster was never hung and is in excellent condition with just some modest toning and light handling wear.
