SR Poster 'Children's Own' by Elizabeth Skottowe Q/R size (50 x 40) mounted on linen dates from 1947. A most wondrous poster of considerable scarcity, indeed believed to be the only known example outside of the NRM. Depicts a variety of activities and entertainments aimed at children, such as pantomimes, magic & mystery, exhibitions, waxworks, circuses and plays. The colourful pictures surrounding the central text include Beefeaters at the Tower of London, waxworks, scenes from the theatre and animals. Some minor damage and fold creases despite being mounted on linen.
