About The Poster: A magnificent poster designed to entice visitors to the IX British Commonwealth Games which were held in Edinburgh, Scotland.
In case you were curious, "The 1970 British Commonwealth Games (Scottish Gaelic: Geamannan a 'Cho-fhlaitheis Bhreatainn 1970) were held in Edinburgh, Scotland from 16 July to 25 July 1970.
This was the first time the name British Commonwealth Games was adopted, the first time metric units rather than imperial units were used, and also the first time the games were held in Scotland.
Also, these games saw the first unique Games trademark logo: an symbol showing the Games emblem intertwined with a St Andrews Cross and a thistle."
In excellent condition and ready to frame. From a private collection.
