TRAFFIC IN SOULS [KAMPEN MOT DEN VITA SLAVHANDELN] (1913)
Vintage original 35 x 24″ (89 x 61 cm.) poster, Sweden. Jane Gail, Matt Moore, dir: George Loane Tucker; Universal. This was, for its time, an extraordinary film about what was called “the white slave trade,” a euphemism for prostitution. It was one of the early features which put the then-fledgling Universal Studios into the consciousness of the ticket-buying public.
This remarkable Swedish poster, with its strong Art Nouveau design elements, bears a monogram at left of an as yet unknown artist. Folded, with a few staple holes, NEAR FINE.
