On the Way to Wembley - Advertising the British Empire Exhibition of 1924
IntroductionThis is a brief exhibit looking at the advertising of The British Empire Exhibition of 1924 held at Wembley.
The first Commemorative Stamps of the UK were designed for the exhibition, though not released until the first day of the event; as well as many other souvenir items -from maps, medals and timetables to Cinderella stamps and postmarks.
Here, I show just a few different items that advertised and marked this historic event.
