EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the summer of 1947, when Southern Railway (SR) sought to entice travelers to the picturesque coastal town of Folkestone in Kent. The poster, skillfully crafted by Verney L Danvers, showcases his exceptional talent as an artist and designer. Danvers, renowned for running a school of commercial art and collaborating with fashion and interior design companies, lent his creative prowess to various transportation entities including SR, London & North Eastern Railway (LNER), and London Transport. His distinctive style is evident in this vibrant artwork that captures the essence of seaside charm. The poster's composition effortlessly transports us into a scene reminiscent of idyllic beach holidays. With its sandy shores stretching towards the horizon and crystal-clear waters gently lapping against them, Folkestone beckons visitors seeking respite from bustling city life. The image evokes a sense of nostalgia for simpler times when rail travel was not only practical but also imbued with a touch of elegance. It reminds us that beyond its functional purpose, train journeys were once seen as exciting adventures filled with anticipation and discovery. As we admire this remarkable piece from the National Railway Museum's Pictorial Collection, let it serve as a reminder that even amidst modernity's rapid progressions, there will always be timeless beauty found in preserving our rich history through artful expressions like Danvers' masterpiece.
