Victoria Posters 62+63


Some posters off E-Bay from Victoria , one above is 1962, ones below from 1963

Sandor Kovacs who wound up promoting Vancouver -once lived here in Oshawa and was a regular on the Southern Ontario scene in the 50's so the two areas were well connected during this era. 

I have a similar poster in my collection from 1965
