EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a vintage poster created by the London, Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS) to promote rail travel to Edinburgh. The artwork, skillfully crafted by renowned marine painter Norman Wilkinson, captures the essence of this historic city and its allure. Wilkinson's artistic talent shines through in this masterpiece as he expertly combines vibrant colors and intricate details to bring Edinburgh to life on paper. The poster serves as an invitation for travelers to embark on a journey filled with cultural richness and architectural marvels. Notably, Wilkinson's contribution extends beyond LMS; his creative prowess has graced posters for other prominent railway companies such as the London & North Western Railway (LNWR), the London & Midlands Railway (LMR), and Southern Railway (SR). His exceptional work also includes organizing the Royal Academy series of posters for LMR in 1924. Fettes College takes center stage in this particular poster, symbolizing both educational excellence and the grandeur of Scotland's capital city. As one gazes upon this remarkable piece of art, it evokes a sense of nostalgia for a bygone era when rail travel was not only practical but also an opportunity for adventure and discovery. Preserved within the National Railway Museum's Pictorial Collection, this print allows us to appreciate not just the beauty of Wilkinson's creation but also its historical significance in promoting social mobility through education while highlighting railways' vital role in connecting people across vast distances.
