This very spirited poster was created for the World Championship of Motor Boat Racing held in Geneva, Switzerland in 1946. We see the high speed boats competing in the blue water of Lake Geneva. The event was scheduled for July 26 - 29 with the added information of there being a Grand Gala Evening on July 27. With this event coming so soon after the end of World War II it was very well received by the spectators who were seeking new events to support after the war.
The artist of this poster is Percival Pernet (1890 - 1977) , unfortunately there is little information available about him.

This is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed, and in excellent condition. We guarantee the authenticity of all of our posters.

  • 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.
