More Information
Travel poster produced in 1924 by London, Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS) to promote rail travel to Aberdeen, Scotland. The poster shows a view of Brig o'Balgownie, which dates back to the 13th century and spans the River Don. Popular belief is that it was commisioned by Robert the Bruce and throughout its history it was considered a vital asset for five centuries from a military point of view. It also provided an important trade route to the wealthy areas of the north-east of Scotland. Its beautifully designed gothic arch is a timeless piece of classic architecture and is built of a mixture of sandstone and granite. It spans over 12 metres and reaches over 17 metres high depending on water-line. The artist Algernon Mayow Talmage (1871-1939) has chosen a downstream view of the bridge and shows two ladies on the left bank relaxing and enjoying their picturesque surroundings.
