Sam Hyde Harris - Iconic Southern Pacific Railroad Poster showing Taxco, Mexico AP1473
When WE say iconic, we MEAN iconic. One of Sam Hyde Harris' most admired posters, produced in his patented Velvet Tone process (a deluxe serigraph that mimicked the surface of the original painting), this particular one hung in Southern Pacific stations all over the country and recalls that golden age of rail travel when you COULD hop a train to Mexico. Very few of these posters survive.
Very fine work. Condition 8/10. Poster measures 29 1/4" x 39 1/2", frame is 32 3/4" x 42 3/4".
