(88x29cm) Large illustrated Edwardian boxing poster for an appearance by Sam Langford, Porky Flynn and a substantial undercard in Cardiff. The poster is soiled and with many closed marginal tears but only one area close to the head of the poster next to the printed 'Arms' is there any loss along the edge, amounting to about 7cmx2cm not affecting lettering. The poster promises 'The Twenty First Annual Grand Assault-at-Arms and Concerts in aid of Nazareth House... at the Park Hall, Cardiff Monday and Tuesday, 6th and 7th March, 1911' with a list of combatants as well as St Saviour's Gymnastic Club and the Cardiff Post Office Band. Langford who was known as the Boston Tar Baby was the outstanding Canadian fighter of his era. The lithograph was courtesy of Stafford and Co of Netherfield near Nottingham.
