Product code: XS-58

Product information

Bangor based company Bailie’s B.B. Tours produced this poster probably in the very early 1900’s to promote travel to Ulster. Bangor had become a fashionable resort for Victorian holidaymakers and from the laying of the railway in 1865 inexpensive travel from Belfast was made possible and working class people could also afford to holiday in the town. Visitors from Great Britain increased immensely during the Edwardian era and Bailie’s Tours offered a ‘Complete Seven Day Tour’ of Ulster. With headquarters in Bangor the package included visits to The Glens of Antrim, Ards Peninsula, Newcastle and the Mountains of Mourne as well as a Day Rail Trip to Dublin. Also included was accommodation, dancing and entertainment at the luxurious Pickie Rock Hotel which overlooked the seafront. (in 1919 became Bangor Collegiate School). Poster shows illustration of a ‘Bailie’s’ coach laden with holidaymakers crossing a stone bridge with the Mountains of Mourne in the background.

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