Once seen on station platforms across the country, posters for the railway companies represented a highpoint of 1920s and 1930s commercial art. This collection, featuring posters and other publicity materials, illustrates how the 'golden age of steam' was also a golden age of graphic design. Among the destinations advertised by the London, Midland and Scottish Railway were Lytham St Annes, Morecambe Bay, the Lake District, Ireland and, in a glamorous painting of theatregoers by Fortunino Matania, Southport in wintertime.
