Starting with the auction that closes on Sunday, September 29, Heritage's Weekly Online Movie Poster Auctions will be changed to the Extended Bidding format.

In an Extended Bidding auction, anyone can bid until 6PM CT the night the auction closes, then anyone who has already bid on any lot may continue to bid on those lots until there are no more bids for 10 minutes. This will replace the Heritage Live session that now occurs at the end of the auction.

    Description

    Golden Years (Retirement) in the Summer (Nagoya Rail Agency, 1930s). Japanese Poster (24.5" X 36").
    This beautiful airbrushed image is a poster issued by Japan's national railway, in this instance the Osaka and Nagoya Rail Agency, during the early to mid 1930s. These posters were created for domestic use only to promote travel within Japan to various national parks, hot spring resorts and other notable destinations. The artwork for the poster was created by Kenkichi Sugimoto (1905-2004) whose work was mostly focused on the Nagoya area, the subject of many of the Japanese travel posters offered in this auction. This example states; Discount on auto (bus) travel during July and October and other discounts also offered. Auto (bus) prices from this station xxx Yen xxx Sen. Since none of these posters were distributed outside of Japan, they are quite scarce. When various Japanese museum poster curators (as well as the Ogaki Poster Museum) were supplied images, they replied that there were no examples of this genre in their collection. This lovely copy had only very small chips in the borders and a minor tear or two in the image. Very Fine on Linen.
