Stanley Kennedy North (1887 – 1942)

British Empire Exhibition Map (1924)



51 x 75 cm

This fascinating and attractive map with elaborate cartouche highlights the attractions of the British Empire Exhibition, a showcase held in London to exhibit the fruits of Britain’s overseas colonies. It was designed to boost support for the Empire’s activities, encourage trade of imperial goods, and remind other world powers of Britain’s (historic) colonial capacity. The Empire Stadium was built especially to house the exhibition; it is known today as Wembley Stadium. The exhibition was opened by King George V on St George’s Day, 1924.

Condition: generally good; folds as issued; a few short tears at corners.
