The Berwick Discovery of Lost Movie Posters



What is extraordinary about these posters is that they had not been lovingly preserved by a collector. Instead, they had initially been glued one on top of each other for display one replacing another each time a new release came to town and then peeled off in one stack. While most posters would have been thrown out at that point, these were saved to be stuffed into the walls of an attic for insulation, where they had remained for 80 years.
