No I would say it's the London marathon. If you look to the left of the picture the writing on the restaurant/pub says The Walrus and the Carpenter.

I looked it up and it's had a face lift since those days but it's address is 45 Monument Street, London, Greater London, EC3R 8BU

I remember going to the Brixton academy to buy tickets for the shows there in 1982, the box office was in the backstage area, there was a hugh pile of these posters, so I asked the guy if I could have one, he said they cost a pound, seeing as I paid £2.50 or something in that region for a ticket, a pound seemed steep, so I left it. Regretfully. Anyhow thanks for the effort you’ve put in on this .

That's roughly 30.0cm by 42.0cm (I think) or 11" by 17" for us Americans ;)

First time I've tried this - so hope the link works!

https://mega.nz/#!wsJXVSSK!oU7crDKpHHFf ... TFRYUzzT1U

If you do want to get this printed out - it is print ready. Ideal size for a poster would be 28"w x 22"h. Most print shops (such as FedEx Office) would just need the PDF to create the poster.

My one caveat is that there is a little risk involved. Until it gets printed out in large scale - there's no way of knowing how good (or bad) it might look. If we were dealing with an image that was originally high resolution I wouldn't worry - but because the original image required a bit of work - I just want to put this out there as a consideration before anyone spends any money getting it printed. I think it should be okay - but just something to think about. Maybe just ask the printer about it before they go ahead and print.
28" x 22" would be between A1 and A2?
Or is it a specific size / name?

I have one printed off to recommended size and it looks brilliant. I also got an extra one to send to my mate who went to the gig with me that night. Thank you to WestwayKid for doing this and everyone who chipped in. I willl post a pic once it is framed and on my wall :mrgreen:
I haven't ruled out getting my hands on the original still and if I do I will give me copy away on here.
