The fabulous poster pastiche based on the work of Frank Henry Mason and others was first launched at the Lion Salt Works in Northwich by Pete Waterman in August 2017.

The posters, in the 1930s vintage illustrative style, include Manchester, Stockport, Altrincham, Hale, Knutsford, Lostock Gralam, Northwich, Delamere, Chester and four Chester Zoo posters Elephants, Giraffes, Penguins and Tigers.
