Hong Kong - Northwest Airlines

A Major US carrier with a strong presence in East Asia, Northwest Airlines issued several Hong Kong travel posters between the 1950’s and 1980’s. Here we have a smaller format photo poster with Chinese fishing junks moored on the quayside, possibly in Wanchai, as a rickshaw puller runs past.
