Product information

Poster produced in 1935 for London & North Eastern Railway (LNER) to promote rail travel to the East Coast of England. The poster shows a couple on the beach relaxing underneath a large red parasol. Artwork by Tom Purvis (1888-1957), who rallied for the profesionalisation 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.

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