Old travel posters

Thanks to @hoddergeography for the tip-off to an evocative set of images...

BOSTON PUBLIC LIBRARY has a Flickr set of beautiful old travel posters...
Here's a couple of examples, there are many more by following the link...

Mitre Peak, New Zealand...
I'll get here one day - as featured in my KS3 Toolkit book: "Look at it this Way"....

These would make a lovely way to explore landscapes...


I also really like this Joseph Binder image of Austria. Made even better by the fact that next week I fly out to Salzburg for 4 days to work on a European-wide GIS project.

Hi, listen, I'm pretty new on this blogosphere and Internet thing, so I don't know if there's a sort of "subscription" method that I can use xlpharmacy in order to receive notifications of your new entries...? Thing is I enjoy reading your blog a lot and I'd like to be up to date with your posts!
