“See Britain by train!” High-style vintage travel posters encouraged visits to England’s historic landmarks, rolling hills, and tranquil waterways while enjoying the comforts and speed of rail travel. Artists helped transform the image of travel throughout the United Kingdom, especially after World War II, tempting would-be vacationers out of the cities to spend leisure time in such idyllic destinations as the Malverns and Stratford-upon-Avon. The 12 posters reproduced in this calendar are a robust sampling of railway advertising output spanning 1930 to 1960.
