An exceptional rare poster designed to promote Cook's South African Tours in the early days of traveling. A wonderful rendering of Victoria Falls depicting the modern way of traveling and a covered wagon which is literally tagged as the "old style" of moving around the vast continent.

The Victoria Falls Bridge was constructed in 1905 at the height of British penetration of Northern and Southern Rhodesia. The brainchild of Cecil Rhodes, the bridge was designed by George Andrew Hobson. It crosses the Zambezi River and the Victoria Falls. The Zambezi River is a border separating Zimbabwe (then Southern Rhodesia) from Zambia (Northern Rhodesia) and the bridge links the two countries.

Mounted on linen. Some tears repaired.
