About The Poster: The history of World's Fairs is directly linked to the major developments in industry, technology, arts and design since the mid 19th century. Before the era of mass media communication, World's Fairs were the foremost method of international information-sharing regarding the advancements of society in industry, science and the arts.
About the Belgian 1935 World's Fair: "Officially sanctioned by the Bureau International des Expositions, twenty-five countries officially participated and a further five were unofficially represented. The theme was colonisation, on the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the Congo Free State.
The exhibition attracted some twenty million visitors. The Palais des Expositions, and at least three other of the 1935 structures, were re-used for the 1958 Brussels World’s Fair which was held at the same site in 1958." (wikipedia)
Poster was recently linen backed, and is in very good condition.
