EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the early 20th century, immersing us in the charm and allure of harbourside life. The poster, produced for the London & North Eastern Railway (LNER) in 1931, transports us to Aberdeen's picturesque harbour wall. Renowned artist Frank H Mason skillfully captures the essence of this bustling port town. In this stunning artwork, our eyes are drawn to a magnificent tall-ship majestically sailing towards the horizon. Its grandeur is juxtaposed against a backdrop of quaint buildings that line the waterfront. The attention to detail is remarkable; every brushstroke brings life and character to each element within this scene. Aberdeen's rich maritime history is further accentuated by a large bell prominently placed in the foreground. This symbolizes both safety and adventure as it stands ready to guide ships navigating these treacherous waters. Printed by Vincent Brooks, Day & Son Ltd. , renowned lithographers based in London at that time, this poster exemplifies their exceptional craftsmanship. It serves as an exquisite example of graphic design from an era when railway posters were not merely advertisements but works of art themselves. As we gaze upon this evocative image today, we can't help but be transported back in time - imagining ourselves strolling along quaysides filled with bustling activity or embarking on voyages aboard majestic vessels bound for distant shores. This print truly encapsulates the beauty and nostalgia associated with Britain's historic railways and their connection
