Description
England’s railways were once a rainbow of liveries. But government management during World War I showed the need for greater efficiency, and by 1923 some 120 companies became the Big Four: Southern Railway; Great Western Railway; London and North Eastern Railway; and London, Midland and Scottish Railway. All had lines fanning out from London to their designated region and tried to attract riders with posters advertising pastoral scenes, charming villages, or flashing views of the capital. The 30 posters in this book of postcards compose a snapshot of interwar rail travel within England, a romantic vision of sophisticated country escapes and city grandeur.
