EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the essence of Blackpool's new promenades during the years 1923-1947. Produced for the London, Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS), this poster aimed to promote express rail travel to the picturesque Lancashire seaside resort. The artwork, skillfully created by Chesley Bonestell, showcases holiday-makers leisurely strolling along the seafront promenades with a breathtaking view of Blackpool Tower and pier in the background. Little did anyone know at that time that Bonestell would later become known as the father of space art. His talent for creating photorealistic paintings would contribute significantly to shaping America's space program in subsequent decades. Printed by McCorquodale & Co Ltd. , this poster not only serves as a nostalgic reminder of simpler times but also highlights how artists like Bonestell can leave an indelible mark on history through their work. The image evokes a sense of joy and relaxation, inviting viewers to imagine themselves immersed in Blackpool's vibrant atmosphere. As we gaze upon this remarkable piece from National Railway Museum's Pictorial Collection, it is impossible not to be transported back in time - where families enjoyed sunny days on sandy beaches, towns bustled with life, and boats sailed gracefully across sparkling waters. This print encapsulates an era when Blackpool was at its prime as a beloved holiday destination – a testament to both its timeless charm and enduring appeal.
