Generic 1950s panto poster designs

These designs were created by George & Marjorie Organ (G&M Organ) for theatres up and down the country to use for the promotion of their pantomimes. The idea was to portray the general panto tale through just one image. Theatre's could place an order for any design which could be overprinted with specific information to the venue and it's performance.
