Chaos in the aftermath of the First World War followed by economic unrest and the General Strike made the 1920s a difficult time for the Great Western Railway; but in the following decade its publicity and advertising department created an identity for the company that still resonates today. This well-illustrated history details the challenges that faced the GWR between the wars and relates how it set about restoring the position of pre-eminence that it held in 1914.
