Product Description
England by Rail 2020 Wall Calendar
The consolidated railway lines of Great Britain, long relied upon by industry and commuters, increasingly catered to tourists as the 1930s came and went. Hard pressed by competition from buses and automobiles, yet determined to increase business, the railways set out to capture the imaginations of vacationers. Top-notch illustrators were hired to design posters advertising train travel to historic castles and charming rural settings, bustling cities and seaside resorts. Slogans encouraged riders to holiday in the Lake District, “Live in Kent and Be Content,” and above all to “See Britain by Train.”

With stunning illustrations and typography, renowned artists and anonymous designers envisioned an ideal escape. Though often little is known about the artists today, their works now fascinate everyone from casual observers to studied collectors.
