Imperial Airways was a pioneering airline that connected Britain with its colonies in Africa, India, and the Far East. It operated from 1924 until 1939, when it was merged with British Airways to form the British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC). This poster depicts an Imperial Airways Vickers Vimy Commercial airliner over the Gulin Karst Hills, China, in the 1920s.
