EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the vibrant era of 1960s Blackpool, a beloved seaside resort in Lancashire. The poster was originally created by British Railways (BR) London, Midland Region to entice travelers to experience the charm and excitement of this coastal destination. In the image, we see a stylish woman basking in the sun on Blackpool's sandy beach. Dressed in a striking red bathing costume and hat, she exudes elegance and relaxation as she indulges in her favorite pastime - reading a book. Behind her stands the iconic Blackpool Tower, an architectural marvel that has become synonymous with this lively town. The artwork by Dickens perfectly captures the essence of summer holidays during this period. It transports us to an era when people sought solace and joy along picturesque coastlines like Blackpool's. This print not only showcases personal moments of leisure but also provides insight into social and economic life at that time. It reminds us of how important recreation was for individuals seeking respite from their daily routines. As we admire this snapshot from history, let it serve as a reminder of the timeless allure that Blackpool held for generations past – its beaches teeming with happy holidaymakers, its seafront filled with laughter and adventure, and its towering landmark standing tall against the backdrop of endless possibilities for fun-filled days by the sea.
