More Information

Railway Travel Poster produced for London & North Eastern Railway (LNER) showing ‘The Coronation’, an aerodynamic train speeding across the Royal Border Bridge over the River Tweed at Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland. Artwork by Tom Purvis, who rallied for the professionalisation of commercial art. In 1930 he was one of the group of artists who founded the Society of Industrial Artists, which campaigned for improved standards of training for commercial artists in order to broaden their scope of employment. He became one of the first Royal Designers for Industry in 1936.

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