Twenty-seven specimens of the Board's poster frames have been erected in centres of population in over-sea parts of the Empire in order to demonstrate the action taken by the Board to promote the sales of Empire produce in this country. Of these frames seven are in Australia, six in New Zealand, five in South Africa and nine in the British West Indies. The question of the erection of similar frames in Canada is under consideration.

Do any of these frames contain advertisements of products manufactured in the United Kingdom?
