EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to a bygone era, capturing the essence of British Railways' promotional efforts from 1948 to 1965. The poster, skillfully created by artist Kenneth Steel, showcases the magnificent Selby Abbey in North Yorkshire, inviting viewers to explore this architectural marvel through train services provided by BR. The focal point of the image is Abbot Hughs Pillar within Selby Abbey, a sight that exudes medieval grandeur and historical significance. As our eyes wander across the poster's intricate details, we are transported into an enchanting world where ancient stone walls whisper tales of centuries past. Steel's artistic prowess shines through as he masterfully captures the abbey's awe-inspiring architecture. Every archway and pillar seems to come alive with his brushstrokes, evoking a sense of reverence for this cultural gem nestled in picturesque Selby. The National Railway Museum proudly presents this print from their Pictorial Collection, allowing us to appreciate both the artistry behind British Railways' promotional materials and the timeless beauty of Selby Abbey. It serves as a reminder that beyond its functional purpose, railways have long played an integral role in connecting people with extraordinary destinations like this one. As we gaze upon this remarkable piece of history preserved on paper, let it inspire us to embark on our own journeys - whether physical or imaginative - and discover hidden treasures waiting just around the corner.
