EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the year 1949, when British Railways (BR) sought to entice travelers to the picturesque coastal town of Aberystwyth in Ceredigion, Wales. The poster, skillfully created by Claude Buckle, showcases a breathtaking view of the coast. As our eyes wander across the image, we are greeted with charming houses perched on cliffs overlooking the vast expanse of sea. In the distance, a majestic pier stretches out into the water, inviting visitors to explore its wonders. Claude Buckle's artistic prowess shines through in this piece as he effortlessly captures both the tranquility and vibrancy of Aberystwyth. Originally trained as an architect but later turning his attention towards pictorial art, Buckle's talent is evident in every brushstroke. Known for his proficiency in oil and watercolor painting, he became renowned for his prolific work as a poster artist for Great Western Railway (GWR) and BR. The National Railway Museum proudly preserves much of Buckle's original poster artwork today. This particular print serves as a testament to not only his creative genius but also BR's commitment to promoting rail travel and showcasing Britain's most enchanting destinations. Transport yourself back in time with this mesmerizing snapshot that encapsulates Aberystwyth’s seaside charm - from its idyllic beaches to its bustling piers - all waiting to be discovered by adventurous souls seeking unforgettable experiences along Britain's railways.
