Old travel posters

Thanks to @hoddergeography for the tip-off to an evocative set of images...

BOSTON PUBLIC LIBRARY has a Flickr set of beautiful old travel posters...
Here's a couple of examples, there are many more by following the link...

Mitre Peak, New Zealand...
I'll get here one day - as featured in my KS3 Toolkit book: "Look at it this Way"....

I also really like this Joseph Binder image of Austria. Made even better by the fact that next week I fly out to Salzburg for 4 days to work on a European-wide GIS project.
