The Orient is Hong Kong, British Crown Colony : jet there by B.O.A.C.


One of the earliest posters issued by the HKTA and made available to inbound airlines to promote Hong Kong as a destination. With the symbolic use of a Union Jack flag on the rickshaw passenger's parasol, B.O.A.C. was likely the only airline which would borrow this poster from the HKTA.
