A RARE travel poster depicting the beauty of the Malvern Hills is set to go under the hammer in New York later this week.

The poster, entitled Great Western Railway/The Malverns, is the work of artist Warwick Goble, who created it in 1931.

It is expected to fetch between $1,000 and $1,500 when it goes on sale at Swann Auction Galleries in New York on Thursday, November 14.
