The text reads: "Germany, Berlin 1936, 1st-16th August, Olympic Games," with smaller text reading, "Information and handbooks from all tourist and travel agencies." Matted and framed to an overall size of 33 x 48.25. In very good condition, with paper loss to upper portion, and scattered tears and scuffing; with some wear and scratches to frame; in spite of its flaws, the poster still makes for a striking and powerful showcase.
