Newquay on the Cornish Coast, Surfing in Cornwall. Vintage GWR Travel Poster by Alfred Lambart. 1925
Vintage travel poster produced for Great Western Railway (GWR) to promote rail travel to Newquay, Cornwall. In 'The Winter Resorts of the West Country', published by the Great Western Railway in 1925, Newquay claimed to have a climate of 'phenomenal dryness'. It also boasted the highest class of modern hotel accomodation, the best golf course and exceptionally exhilarating air. It is Britain's most popular place for surfing. Artwork by Alfred Lambart, who studied art at the Allan-Frazer College of Art in Arbroath. He designed posters for London & North Eastern Railway (LNER) and London, Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS) and was a book illustrator.
This is truly an outstanding quality poster. It is printed on Fuji crystal archive photographic paper and is by no means a flimsy poster.
