    John used to work or have a connection to Qantas.  He's had some amazing posters in this series.  Perhaps he'll post up a few more!

    I have collected quite a few Qantas posters over the years. The ones pictured in the earlier post are generally referred to as reissues/reprints. The posters were originally designed by Harry Rogers in the late 50s but the same designs were reprinted in the late 60s with a very slight variation from the originals. The original release Harry Rogers designs should show a Super Constellation logo where the later release show a707   ....

    When we auction U.S. airline travel posters, we see that there are usually at least three versions of each one. One from the 1950s, the 1960s, and the 1970s, and just as John said, the main difference is usually the type of airplane or jet pictured. We almost never get any Qantas ones!
    We (eMoviePoster.com) hold 3,000 auctions every other week + 6 major auctions a year.

    So Heritage sold these as 1950s originals but they're actually from the 1960s? Typical.
