  1. Great posters.saved them all for mini-pics for my walls. Actually, I had a massive Queen is Dead poster which I bought from outside of the Kilburn National Ballroom in 1986. It followed me from digs to digs until 1997 when it finally became so damaged, I could not hang it! Shame, wish I had bought 2 of them …
