In the post-World War II era of the 1950's, the economies of the world were growing rapidly and commercial travel was expanding. The German Federal Railway which was severely damaged during the War, had begun to rebuild and add new equipment to be able to service the new ridership. In this image, we see a whimsical montage of train pictures that makes up a happy winter face. If you take a closer look, you will find the train in the pictures is traveling to the ski destinations, with a happy winter time ahead!

The Deutsche Bundesbahn or DB (German Federal Railway) was formed as the state railway of the newly established Federal Republic of Germany (FRG) on 7 September 1949 as a successor of the Deutsche Reichsbahn-Gesellschaft (DRG). The DB remained the state railway of West Germany until after German reunification, when it was merged with the former East German Deutsche Reichsbahn (DR) to form Deutsche Bahn AG, which came into existence on 1 January 1994. The DB was a state-owned company that, with few local exceptions, exercised a monopoly concerning rail transport throughout West Germany.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
