This gorgeous original poster was published by the South Indian Railway to promote train journeys to the Nilgiris District in India.

Text: "Away down south India's southern jewel The Nilgiri Hills
Wonderful Climate - Magnificent Scenery
The fines sanatorium in the East
Hunting, Golf, Fishing, and Big-Game Shooting"

The Nilgiris District is in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Nilgiri is the name given to a range of mountains spread across the borders among the states of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala. The Nilgiri Hills are part of a larger mountain chain known as the Western Ghats. The administrative headquarters is located at Ooty.

In its hey-day Ooty sported a golf course, polo, swimming, tennis, snooker, a racetrack. With expansive bungalows, churches and the Ooty club (in operation since 1841), this was a slice of England or more accurately a layered cake of Britain. The Gymkhana Golf Club in Ooty is still operative.

In fair condition. The poster was printed with a varnish coating. Several scratches but no tears. Would look spectacular on the wall. Extremely rare!

This is an Authentic Original Vintage Poster from its time. It's not a new reproduction.
