Ireland via Holyhead, Passing the Kish Irish Travel poster print by Norman Wilkinson

Product code: S-26

Product information

Original oil painting Travel Poster by Norman Wilkinson was for a London Midland & Scottish Railway poster. Many British railway companies also operated ferry services. Wilkinson was commisioned by several of the companies to produce artwork for use in posters promoting their services. The London Midland & Scottish Railway Company (LMS) was formed in 1923. It operated ferry services across the Irish Sea on routes between Holyhead and Dublin, and Heysham and Belfast. In 1948 all the private railway companies' shipping fleets were nationalised, becoming part of the British Transport Commision. This railway travel poster shows the Irish Mail boat entering Dublin Bay. It shows the ship passing the Kish Light ship which was stationed in Dublin Bay to guide shipping into Dublin. The Kish is no longer there. I believe the ship was called The Scottier. It has the new version of Dervoc/Gantry (for launching lifeboats).

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