Adapted from a 1938 Art Deco travel poster by Gert Sellheim, the original image encouraged beach exploration with the caption The Seaside Calls: Go by Train - Take a 'Kodak.'

Gert Sellheim (1901–1970), a German-Australian artist renowned for his bold graphic design, was born in Estonia to German parents. Initially studying architecture at universities in Germany, he moved to Western Australia in 1926 and later established an architecture and design practice in Melbourne in 1930. His relocation to Sydney in 1947 marked a pivotal period in which he gained acclaim for designing iconic posters for the Australian National Travel Association, including the distinctive flying kangaroo.
