This is a stunning original vintage issued by The British Empire Exhibition (1924) to promote the 1925 reopening of: “The Same Empire but a New Exhibition - Better and Brighter Than Ever”.
The British Empire Exhibition was a colonial exhibition held at Wembley Park, Wembley, England, from 23 April 1924 to 31 October 1925.
17 million visitors came to the Exhibition in 1924 from all over Britain and beyond to learn about the world. Many of the national pavilions had been designed in the architectural styles of the countries they represented.
The British Empire Exhibition was so popular that it re-opened in 1925 with many new attractions, so that the organizers used the slogan “The Same Empire but a New Exhibition” in their advertising. The Amusement Park had some extra features to attract children, such as “Treasure Island”. In all, another 10 million visitors came to Wembley for the exhibition between May and October that year (1925).
The poster is in great condition. Some light wear. Mounted on linen.
