In this poster we view the native Fiji native steering her loaded canoe through the water. We see palm trees and mountains in the distance suggesting an exotic destination. This poster was created for Tasman Empire Airways Limited (TEAL) in the 1950's. The TEAL company, formed in 1940, was originally formedto transport mail, passengers and cargo across the Tasman Sea between Australia and New Zealand, during World War II. It later became a passenger airline as well after the War. The shares of the company were originally held by the government of New Zealand, Union Airways, BOAC, and Qantas.

Fiji is an island country located in the South Pacific Ocean about 1300 miles northeast of New Zealand's North Island. Fiji is composed of more than 330 islands, with approximately one million total inhabitants. The capital, Suva on Viti Levu, serves as Fiji's principal cruise port. Fiji has one of the most developed economies in the Pacific due to an abundance of forest, mineral, and fish resources. Today, the main sources of foreign exchange are its tourist industry and sugar exports.

  • 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.
