EDITORS COMMENTS
This stunning vintage print captures the essence of Cornwall's timeless beauty, inviting viewers to embark on a journey back in time. Produced by British Railways (BR) between 1948 and 1965, this poster serves as a captivating promotional tool for rail travel to Cornwall. The artwork, skillfully crafted by Frank A. A. Wootton (1914-1998), transports us to a picturesque harbour scene that exudes tranquility and charm. As we gaze upon the print, our eyes are immediately drawn to the bustling harbor filled with an array of boats gently bobbing on the water's surface. Surrounding this maritime hub are quaint cottages nestled amidst rolling hills, their colorful facades adding vibrancy to the idyllic village setting. Seagulls gracefully soar above, their presence enhancing the coastal atmosphere. Wootton's masterful brushstrokes effortlessly capture every minute detail - from the texture of each cottage roof tile to the shimmering reflections dancing across the tranquil waters below. This artwork truly encapsulates Cornwall's unique allure and its ability to transport visitors into a world where time seems suspended. The National Railway Museum proudly preserves this remarkable piece within its Pictorial Collection, allowing us all to appreciate not only Wootton's artistic talent but also British Railways' dedication in promoting travel experiences through breathtaking destinations like Cornwall. Let this evocative print inspire you to explore new horizons and embrace the timeless beauty that awaits along Britain's enchanting coastlines
