EDITORS COMMENTS
This stunning vintage print captures the essence of Ely, a charming city in Cambridgeshire, England. The poster, produced for the London & North Eastern Railway (LNER) in 1940, showcases the magnificent Ely Cathedral as its focal point. Standing proudly on a chalk hill, this Norman cathedral has been an integral part of Ely's history since its founding as a monastic church in 1083. The artwork by Loxton Knight beautifully portrays the grandeur of the cathedral against a backdrop of quaint houses and a serene river. The image exudes tranquility and invites viewers to imagine themselves strolling along the riverside or exploring the narrow streets that surround this architectural marvel. Ely Cathedral is not only an iconic landmark but also holds great religious significance. Having gained cathedral status in 1109, it continues to be an important place of worship and pilgrimage for Christians from all over the world. This print from National Railway Museum's Pictorial Collection serves as both a historical artifact and a work of art. It transports us back to an era when rail travel was at its peak and encourages us to appreciate not only Ely's natural beauty but also its rich cultural heritage. Whether you are captivated by architectural wonders or simply seeking inspiration from days gone by, this enchanting print reminds us that sometimes it truly is quicker by rail – especially when it leads us to extraordinary destinations like Ely.
