This is spectacular original vintage travel poster designed by A. W. Baylis. Issued by The Southern Rhodesia Publicity Office to promote tourism in the late 1930's. A poster you don't see very often offered for sale.

Umtali (today Mutare) was the third largest town in Southern Rhodesia picturesquely situated in the foothills of the Eastern Highlands sprawling up the sides of Christmas Pass.

Printed text: After the Queen of Sheba, one of the more modern adventurers to penetrate into what is now known as Southern Rhodesia, was Francesco Barreto, who is depicted above with his forces, passing through the hills into the Monomotapa’s country; A.D.1572

Small tears and losses in margins. Tape stains. Mounted on linen. An extremely hard poster to find!
