Ross On Wye, Herefordshire. Vintage GWR Travel poster by Claude Buckle. 1938
English Travel Poster produced in 1938 for the Great Western Railway (GWR) to promote rail services to Ross on Wye in Herefordshire. The poster shows a picturesque view of the town with the ancient landmark of St Mary’s Parish church standing proud. In the foreground is the calm waters of the River Wye with people relaxing and fishing. Artwork by Claude Buckle (1905-1973), 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 artist for GWR as well as 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.
