The Tyneside Prints watermark does not appear on the poster that you receive.

In 1929 Newcastle was the venue for a spectacle the like of which had never been seen in the region. During its six month life 4½ million visitors passed through the turnstiles, and when the pavilions were dismantled the area reverted to a public park, Exhibition Park at it is now. It remains in folk memory of Tyneside as one of the most enjoyable events in regional history.
