EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the golden era of travel, specifically to the enchanting Cornish Riviera in 1925. Produced as a promotional poster for the Great Western Railway, it showcases the breathtaking beauty of St Michaels Mount and entices adventurers to explore this idyllic holiday destination. The artwork by Barry Pittar perfectly captures the allure and charm that Cornwall has long been renowned for. The image transports us to a time when train journeys were not just about reaching a destination but also about immersing oneself in stunning landscapes. As we gaze upon this print, we are instantly drawn into its magical atmosphere. The azure waters gently caress the sandy shores while St Michaels Mount stands majestically on its rocky perch, seemingly untouched by time. Cornwall's Cornish Riviera is aptly named; it truly feels like stepping into a Mediterranean paradise right here in England. With its picturesque villages, rugged cliffs, and pristine beaches, it is no wonder that this region became such an irresistible magnet for holidaymakers seeking tranquility and natural beauty. As we admire this remarkable piece of art from the National Railway Museum collection, let us be reminded of how travel posters like these played an essential role in shaping our perception of destinations during a time when wanderlust was sparked through evocative imagery alone.
