Railway Posters – part 9

This large series on railway poster deals mainly with what could be called the golden age of the railway poster, where the sun always shone and the British seaside was as glamorous as the Côte d’Azur. Many talented and famous artists like Frank Newbould, John Hassall and Terence Cuneo worked on these posters.
