EDITORS COMMENTS
This print transports us back to the enchanting River Dart in 1961, as captured by British Railways (BR) Western Region. The poster was specifically designed to promote rail services to Devon, showcasing the region's natural beauty and idyllic landscapes. The artwork, skillfully crafted by Cecil King, perfectly captures the essence of this picturesque destination. As we gaze upon the image, our eyes are drawn towards the meandering River Dart that gracefully winds its way through lush greenery. A charming paddle steamer glides along its tranquil waters, adding a touch of nostalgia and romance to the scene. Beyond the riverbanks lie rolling hills that stretch out into infinity, inviting exploration and adventure. The poster serves as a testament to BR's commitment in highlighting not only their rail services but also promoting tourism within Devon. It encapsulates a time when travel was an experience filled with wonder and discovery. Now preserved at the National Railway Museum, this print continues to captivate viewers with its timeless charm. It reminds us of simpler times when nature's beauty could be enjoyed without distractions or haste – a reminder that amidst our fast-paced world today; there is still solace in connecting with serene landscapes such as those found along the banks of the River Dart.
