      ALLAN M. LEWIS (DATES UNKNOWN) AUSTRALIA CALLS YOU. Circa 1924.
      39 1/4x24 1/4 inches, 99 3/4x61 1/2 cm. Waite & Bull Printers, Sydney.
      Condition A.
      A scarce and early Australian travel poster in which a couple on the deck of a ship are referring to their Australian travel guide booklet. Although unsigned, this same image was used on the back cover of a travel brochure (the very one being perused by the couple). It is from this brochure (not included with the lot) that we learn the artist's name and derive the poster's date.
