Product description

Waddington's circular jigsaw puzzle - design no. 539 (BOAC Boeing 707 / world travel)
 
An original c.1960s vintage John Waddington's Circular Jig-Saw puzzle (design no. 539), comprising "over 500" cardboard pieces, complete and in its original pictorial cardboard box. The "world travel" themed design depicts a "B.O.A.C.  Boeing 707  in flight" and "Boarding a B.O.A.C. Boeing 707 Jetliner at London (Heathrow) Airport", surrounded by views of tourist attractions in Ceylon, Hong Kong, Honolulu, San Francisco, New York, Egypt and Lebanon.
 
Although both the box and the puzzle itself show various signs of age (see condition description below), the set remains in complete and usable condition, and would thus make a great addition to a collection of vintage puzzles or travel / transport / aviation memorabilia.
