Sydney-Australia - Vintage Australian Airline Poster

See the new world below the equator

The artwork for the original colour lithograph was created by Douglas Annand for Qantas Airways Limited and published for Australian National Travel Association between 1934 and 1939. The poster prompting Sydney, depicting an aerial view of the Harbour at night showing  a street light lit foreshore, a passenger ship and ferries on the water with the Southern Cross proudly displayed in the night sky with the Sydney Harbour Bridge in the distance.

Douglas Shenton Annand was born at Toowoomba, Queensland in 1903. He worked for several firms before he commenced as a freelance artist and designer in 1931. The Poster he created for the opening of the Sydney Harbour Bridge in 1932 is a work that is well known. He designed the ceiling of the Australian Pavilion for the Paris International Exhibition in 1937 and following the WW II he was commissioned for numerous murals, winning the Sir John Sulman Prize in 1941, 1947 and 1951. His work included magazine covers and coin design, and had a wide range of significant clients, including 'Qantas, Australia’s premier airline'.

Douglas Annand produced many notable Australian posters, including this wonderful design for an early 1970s Qantas poster, featuring a graphically distinctive icon from the Australian bush - the Kangaroo Tail (Xanthorrhoea tree) or the ‘grass tree’.
