The post-World War II era saw the growth of the ski industry worldwide as so many former military personnel looked for exciting new sports to enjoy. In the Seattle, Washington area there were a number of ski areas to enjoy and there were a handful local of ski equipment suppliers. In this image, reminiscent of European designs of the times, we see a bare chested climber using his ski equipment from Gerber Bros., Seattle. The Anderson & Thompson Ski Co. started in 1934 and Sid Gerber, who made and sold bear trap bindings bought into the ski operation. The new firm did a healthy business during the war, selling skis and bindings to the Army.

  • 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.
