This vintage poster was originally published to promote the "Örebro-spelen" held from June 28 to July 1, 1928, as part of the larger "Örebro Läns Utställning." This significant event aimed to showcase a variety of sports and competitions, and the poster, designed by Andresén, reflects this with a vibrant yellow and red color scheme, featuring two athletes at the top.
The Swedish text on the poster indicates the various categories in which competitions took place, encompassing a wide range of sporting activities: Allmän idrott (featuring the Swedish championship relay race and decathlon), Fotboll (football), gymnastik (gymnastics), simning (swimming), skytte (shooting), cykel (cycling), tennis, and kanotsport (canoeing).
The poster, despite some signs of wear and an old tape repair at the lower right corner causing discoloration, remains a valuable artifact that offers a glimpse into the diverse athletic pursuits and competitive spirit that characterized this historic event.
