Poster demonstrates that battle reenacters are nothing new.  Under the patronage of the Kaiser and the Empress of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Budapest Garrison staged battle reenactments to raise money for military charities. Stages around the world had 'herolands' that attempted to connect the public with events at the front. Sumptuous poster by the well known Biró shows a gigantic Hungarian soldier charging with a rifle and bayonet hovering on the skyline of Budapest. The famous Chain Bridge that links the Buda and Pest sides of the Hungarian capital lies at his feet.  Hallucinagenic, powerful and vey rare. 39x47 near mint, conservation backed.
