Travel poster produced for the Great Western Railway (GWR) in 1930 to promote the railway's 'Land Cruises' to the American market. These were similar to todays package holidays, and the Wye Valley was one of the first destinations to be offered. Two hundred of these posters were printed and sent for display in the USA. The poster shows a view across the River Wye to the ruins of the abbey, with hills in the background. Artwork by Frieda Lingstrom, who studied at the Central School of Arts and Crafts and Heatherleys and was commisioned by the Norwegian and Swedish governments to do Scandinavian drawings for English travel propaganda. She designed posters and booklet covers for LNER and was known for her landscape paintings.
