EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the early 20th century, where rail travel was promoted as a gateway to leisure and adventure. The poster, produced collaboratively by Midland Railway (MR) and Glasgow & South Western Railway (GSWR), entices travelers to visit the picturesque holiday resort of Troon in South Ayrshire, Scotland. The focal point of this vintage artwork is a lady golfer gracefully swinging her club on Troon's renowned golf course. Her elegant posture and confident demeanor epitomize the spirit of this beloved sport. Beneath the picture, enticing text highlights Troon's attractions - six exceptional golf courses beckoning enthusiasts from near and far, an inviting sandy beach perfect for relaxation, and numerous other delights awaiting discovery. The artist behind this masterpiece is J Y Wright whose talent brings life to every stroke captured on this nostalgic print. Through his skilled craftsmanship, he transports us to a time when fashion played an integral role in defining one's identity. The woman depicted showcases not only her sporting prowess but also reflects the fashionable attire of that era. Preserved within National Railway Museum's Pictorial Collection, this extraordinary photograph allows us to marvel at how railway companies once used artistry to inspire wanderlust among potential travelers. It serves as a reminder that even today we can find inspiration in these timeless images that capture both history and beauty simultaneously.
