The poster shows a young woman in a green bikini delighted with her find, a starfish. Behind her many people can be seen on the sandy beach enjoying the sunny day and St Marys Lighthouse can also be seen. Artwork by Arthur C Michael, a painter and etcher who worked mainly in watercolour. He illustrated books and periodicals and also designed posters for London & North Eastern Railway (LNER).
