About this poster
This lovely stone lithograph by Alex W. Diggelmann shows a white gull flying over the Quai Bridge on Lake Zurich with the city in the background. Vintage posters for Zurich are very rare because Zurich was never advertised as much as the famous Swiss tourist resorts were. A perfect stone lithograph from 1940.
