More Information
Poster produced in 1938 for Great Western Railway (GWR) and Southern Railway (SR) to promote rail travel to Plymouth, Devon, which is described as a ‘Delightful Centre for Holidays’. The poster was issued jointly by GWR, SR and the local council. The two companies each paid 25% of the cost, and the council the remainder. Artwork by Claude Buckle, who originally trained as an architect but turned to fine art in 1928. He painted in both oil and watercolour and was a prolific poster artis for the Great Western Railway (GWR) and British Railways (BR).

This is truly an outstanding quality poster. It is printed on Fuji crystal archive photographic paper and is by no means a flimsy poster.
