Extent: 1 colour art print(s)Chromolithograph, 1005 x 640 mm.. Ephemera

Historical Notes: The subtitle "Wonderland of the Pacific" was used on a booklet issued for use overseas in 1929, and scheduled for re-issue around 1935 in a deluxe addition, according to the Tourist and Publicity Department's annual report for 1934-35. This suggests the poster is dated around that time. The Department reported in 1932 that it had sent around 6000 copies of various posters to its overseas agencies, and was preparing designs for additional posters.
