Le Puy
Original color lithographic poster, printed by Publicontrol, Brussels, Belgium circa 1946. Condition: Very Fine (A-) , backed on linen.
Sheet size: 38.5 H. X 25 W.
This rare, early British European Airways poster (BEA) features the Vickers Viking 1 in almost photographic accuracy. This plane represents the airlines first purchase of new aircraft in 1946. The Viking 1 both supplemented and replaced their fleet of Dakota's C-47 which BEA received from the RAF transport Command; they were faster and could seat more passengers.

For BEA, this was the "Keyline" era and for the British, BEA was indeed "the key to Europe".
