EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back in time to the bustling Peterborough market place during the 1950s. The British Railways poster, created by talented artist Bertram Prance and printed by Corley and Pickersgill Ltd of Leeds, beautifully captures the essence of this vibrant town center. As we gaze upon this image, we are transported to a world filled with lively activity. The market square comes alive with colorful stalls showcasing an array of goods, enticing passersby to explore their offerings. The buildings surrounding the marketplace stand tall and proud, exuding a sense of history and character that is unique to Peterborough. The attention to detail in Prance's artwork is truly remarkable. Every element within the scene has been meticulously depicted, from the intricate architectural features of the buildings to the animated expressions on people's faces as they engage in conversation or browse through various products. This snapshot not only serves as a visual delight but also offers us a glimpse into an era when community gathering places like market squares played an integral role in everyday life. It reminds us of simpler times when townspeople would come together here for socializing, shopping, and exchanging stories. Preserved within National Railway Museum's Pictorial Collection, this print stands as a testament to both artistic talent and historical significance. It allows us to appreciate how transportation networks like British Railways connected communities across regions while simultaneously celebrating local culture and commerce
