A2 Poster (59.4 x 42cm, 23.4" x 16.5" inches) printed on 170gsm Satin Poster Paper. Securely packaged, rolled and inserted into a strong mailing tube and shipped tracked. Poster Prints are of comparable archival quality to our Photographic prints, they are simply printed on thinner Poster Paper. Whilst we only use Photographic Prints in our frames, you can frame Poster Prints if they are carefully supported to prevent sagging over time.

Poster prints are budget friendly enlarged prints in standard poster paper sizes (A0, A1, A2, A3 etc). Whilst poster paper is sometimes thinner and less durable than our other paper types, they are still ok for framing and should last many years. Our Archival Quality Photo Prints and Fine Art Paper Prints are printed on higher quality paper and the choice of which largely depends on your budget.

EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative photograph, captured by John Gay between 1960 and 1974, presents a unique and intriguing juxtaposition of land and air transport at Heathrow Airport. The image showcases a sleek Bentley car, parked regally on the runway, its polished surface reflecting the crisp autumn sunlight. In the foreground, the propellers of an aircraft stand still, a testament to the engineering marvel that enables flight. Heathrow Airport, a hub of international travel and transportation, serves as the backdrop for this scene. The British European Airways (BEA) buildings can be seen in the background, their modernist design a stark contrast to the classic elegance of the Bentley. The propellers, a relic of an era when air travel relied on the power of piston engines, add a sense of nostalgia to the image. The photograph captures a moment of pause, as the Bentley and the aircraft coexist on the runway. It is a reminder of the interconnectedness of land and air transport, and the role they play in shaping our world. The Bentley, a symbol of luxury and status, and the aircraft, a symbol of innovation and exploration, come together in this snapshot of a bygone era. John Gay's masterful composition and use of light and shadow add depth and texture to the image, making it a captivating addition to any collection of transportation history. This photograph is not only a visual delight but also a historical record of a time when the future of travel was taking shape at Heathrow Airport.
