Tourism posters of the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s convey with striking graphics and imagery the allure and appeal of travelling in Victoria. Many of the places that the posters advertise as holiday destinations are still popular today.

These Victorian Railways posters encouraged people to travel by train. Digital images of hundreds of posters from the Public Transport Corporation Photographic Collection can be viewed on PROV's website.
