EDITORS COMMENTS
This print titled "Caesars Choice" takes us back to the year 43 AD, capturing a pivotal moment in history when Julius Caesar arrived at the breezy Kent coast. Produced for the South Eastern & Chatham Railway (SECR), this poster aimed to promote rail services to this picturesque destination. The artwork by Graham Phillips vividly depicts Roman soldiers disembarking from their ship and wading through the shallow waters of the Channel towards the coast of Kent. Dressed in contemporary Roman military attire, these brave warriors carry swords and shields as they set foot on British soil, marking their intent to claim Britain for the mighty Roman Empire. In the distance, another Roman ship can be seen, emphasizing their formidable presence. With its intricate details and vibrant colors, this railway poster is a testament to both artistic skill and historical significance. It transports viewers back in time, allowing them to imagine what it must have been like during those ancient times of conquest and exploration. Displayed proudly at National Railway Museum's Pictorial Collection, "Caesars Choice" not only captures an important chapter in human history but also showcases how art and graphic design were utilized even in early forms of advertising. This remarkable piece serves as a reminder of our rich heritage while highlighting the enduring power of railways as a means of connecting people with fascinating destinations throughout time.
