EDITORS COMMENTS
This print transports us back to the golden era of rail travel, specifically promoting the picturesque Yorkshire Moors. Created between 1923 and 1947 for the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER), this poster captures the essence of adventure and exploration. The artwork by Tom Purvis beautifully showcases two elegant women adorned in fashionable hats and clothing from the 1920s. As they stroll through the vast expanse of moorland, their walking sticks serve as both a practical aid and a symbol of their independent spirit. One woman even carries a knapsack on her back, hinting at an exciting journey ahead. Printed by McCorquodale & Co Ltd in Glasgow and London, this large-scale poster measures an impressive 1016mm x 1270mm. Its size allows for every intricate detail to be appreciated, from the rolling hills to the delicate features of our intrepid walkers. This image not only promotes rail travel but also evokes a sense of nostalgia for simpler times when exploring nature was cherished. It invites viewers to imagine themselves embarking on their own rambling adventures across these breathtaking landscapes. Preserved within National Railway Museum's Pictorial Collection, this print serves as a timeless reminder that beauty lies just beyond our railway stations – waiting to be discovered by those with an adventurous spirit.
