EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a rare glimpse into the past, offering a fascinating insight into the Grangemouth Docks during the early 20th century. The poster, produced for London, Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS), captures the essence of this bustling port in Falkirk, Scotland. What makes this particular print even more intriguing is its status as a proof copy, adorned with hand-written and annotated corrections. This unique touch reveals the meticulous attention to detail that went into creating such railway posters during that era. The artistic brilliance behind this masterpiece belongs to Norman Wilkinson (1878-1971), an acclaimed marine painter who honed his skills at Portsmouth and Southsea Schools of Art. Known for his exceptional talent in capturing maritime scenes, Wilkinson was commissioned by various railway companies to design their posters. It is worth noting that Wilkinson's contribution extended beyond individual commissions; he also organized the Royal Academy series of posters for the London & Midlands Railway (LMR) in 1924. His dedication to promoting railways through art left an indelible mark on both transportation history and artistic expression. Preserved within National Railway Museum's Pictorial Collection, this remarkable print serves as a testament to the rich heritage of Grangemouth Docks and LMS railway. Its historical significance cannot be overstated, providing us with a visual time capsule that transports us back to an era when shipping and trade played pivotal roles in shaping our world.
