EDITORS COMMENTS
This vintage railway poster from the 1930s captures the essence of Welwyn Garden City, a charming commuter town in Hertfordshire. Designed to promote this idyllic destination, the poster showcases a clock design superimposed onto stylized locomotives, symbolizing the greatly improved train service connecting Welwyn Garden City to Kings Cross. Created by renowned artist C W Bacon and printed by Dangerfield Printing Co Ltd in London, this artwork not only highlights the convenience of commuting but also emphasizes the affordability of living in this picturesque town. The text on the poster proudly displays rental and purchase prices for homes, with houses available for up to £2,000. Such reasonable prices were undoubtedly appealing to those seeking an escape from overpopulated London. Welwyn Garden City was founded in 1920 by Ebenezer Howard, a visionary social reformer and pioneer of town planning. His aim was to alleviate overcrowding in London while providing residents with a high quality of life surrounded by green spaces and modern amenities. This print serves as a testament to Howard's vision brought to life. With its dimensions measuring 1016mm x 635mm, this historic railway poster is not just an artistic masterpiece but also a window into the past—a reminder of how towns like Welwyn Garden City played an essential role in shaping Britain's transportation infrastructure and improving people's lives through efficient commuting options.
