Major George Conrad Roller

From: ProjectNews

For almost 40 years George Roller was responsible for many of Burberry’s advertising illustrations; over the years he must have drawn thousands of pictures of people modelling the company’s garments! This example is typical both of the type of clothes the company produced and the market they were aimed at – the well-to-do, out-doors (‘hunting, shooting and fishing’) type.
