The Yorkshire Coast, BR poster, 1950s Featured February Image

The Yorkshire Coast, BR poster, 1950s

Poster produced for British Railways (BR) to promote rail travel to the Yorkshire coast. The poster shows a view of Robin Hood's Bay, which lies on the Yorkshire coast between Whitby and Scarborough. Whilst the association of the legendary figure of Robin Hood with the town is probably dubious, it was home to a thriving smuggling industry in past times. Artwork by Frank Sherwin

Snowdonia, LMS poster, c 1933 Featured February Image

Snowdonia, LMS poster, c 1933

Poster produced for the London Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS) to promote rail travel to Snowdonia in Wales. In 1923 the LMS boasted in its booklet The Wonderland of Wales that Snowdon and the Welsh Highlands are synonymous with scenery of ravishing beauty. Ancient story, sweet murmurs of mountain streams and soul stirring music of peasant people add to the delights of this romantic region as a holiday ground.
Artwork by Charles H Baker, who was born in Ilminster and educated at Berkhamstead School. He was Head of Research at the Huntington Library, California. He painted landscapes in oil and designed posters for LMS
