1940 Helsinki Finland Olympics Travel Poster Matkat
This is a rare original large 39 1/2 by 24 1/4 inch travel poster put out for the soon to be canceled Olympic games that were to have been held in Helsinki Finland.The artist was Jorma Suhonen and it was published by Suomen Matkat for the Finnish railways.I will rate it a A- with a couple of minor wrinkles in center near the bottom a little side wrinkling on the bottom left edge and a paper crease on the bottom left corner. Condition is really quite nice for this scarce poster.I could only find one other for sale on line and I am asking half of what that one is priced at. The Library of Congress has a copy pictured on their Finnish page.I purchased this from a estate of Scandinavian people who had traveled to this country.
