London, GWR poster, 1940s Featured 19 May 2003 Image

London, GWR poster, 1940s

Poster produced for Great Western Railway (GWR) to promote train services to London. Although the style of the artwork would suggest a date in the 1940s, the area shown near Blackfriars Bridge was damaged during World War II. This damage is not shown in the poster. It is possible that the artist, in seeking to produce a promotional poster setting forth the capital in its best aspect, and in keeping with the spirit of optimism and the desire to move forward from the horror of war, chose not to depict the buildings as damaged. Artwork by Frank Henry Mason (1876-1965), who painted marine and coastal subjects and, in addition to designing railway posters, was also involved in engineering and shipbuilding

Earths magnetosphere, artwork

Earth's magnetic field. Artwork showing Earth's magnetosphere (blue) in the solar wind (not to scale). The field lines originate from the poles, and form a shield that protects the Earth from the radiation of the solar wind (orange). The solar wind is made up of energetic charged particles. Earth's magnetic field channels these towards the poles, where they collide with the atmosphere and produce aurorae. The pressure of the solar wind causes Earth's magnetic field to be flattened on the sunward side and form a tail millions of kilometres long pointing away from the Sun. The field is generated by currents of molten iron in the Earth's core
