EDITORS COMMENTS
This vintage print takes us back to the year 1940, when travel and exploration were at the forefront of people's minds. The poster, created by talented artist Frank Henry Mason, was commissioned by the London & North Eastern Railway (LNER) to promote their rail and sea services from Harwich, Essex to various Continental ports. The artwork beautifully captures the essence of adventure and discovery. Set against a backdrop of serene blue waters, we see a magnificent steamship sailing towards distant shores. Its billowing smokestacks symbolize progress and excitement as it embarks on its journey across the sea. Harwich for the Continent served as a gateway for travelers seeking new experiences in Esbjerg, Zeebrugge, Antwerp, Flushing, and the Hook of Holland. With this poster's vibrant colors and meticulous attention to detail, it effortlessly transports viewers into an era where steamships ruled the waves. Frank Henry Mason's background in engineering and shipbuilding shines through his artistic representation of these majestic vessels. His love for marine subjects is evident in every brushstroke that brings life to this nostalgic scene. As we gaze upon this remarkable piece of history preserved by National Railway Museum's Pictorial Collection, we are reminded of a time when crossing oceans meant embarking on grand adventures filled with anticipation and wonder.
