EDITORS COMMENTS
This stunning vintage poster from 1955 captures the essence of Kent, famously known as "The Garden of England". Created by artist Frank Sherwin for British Railways (BR) Southern Region (SR), this print was designed to entice travelers to explore the picturesque county through rail travel. The artwork showcases a breathtaking view of the countryside, adorned with blossoming trees that paint the landscape in vibrant hues. Nestled among nature's beauty is an iconic oast house, a symbol synonymous with Kent's agricultural heritage and its world-renowned hop-growing industry. Standing proudly nearby is a charming village church, adding to the idyllic charm of this rural scene. Sherwin's masterful brushstrokes perfectly capture the tranquility and serenity that can be found in Kent's rolling hills and lush green fields. The poster invites viewers to immerse themselves in this bucolic setting, promising an escape from bustling city life into a land where time seems to stand still. Preserved by the National Railway Museum's Pictorial Collection, this print serves as both a historical artifact and an artistic masterpiece. It transports us back to an era when rail travel was not only practical but also romanticized as a means of discovering hidden gems like Kent – a place where natural beauty meets quintessential English charm.
