EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the iconic Royal Albert Bridge, a true masterpiece of engineering and artistry. Designed and constructed by the legendary Isambard Kingdom Brunel, this magnificent bridge spans across the majestic river Tamar, connecting the picturesque counties of Devon and Cornwall. The poster, created in 1945 for Great Western Railway (GWR), aims to promote rail services to these enchanting regions. Its artwork is derived from an original watercolour painting by Anton Abraham van Anrooy, a talented artist hailing from Holland. Van Anrooy's expertise extended beyond landscapes as he also excelled in portraiture and interior design. The image captures the sheer grandeur of this architectural marvel against a backdrop of serene waters. The intricate details of the bridge's ironwork are beautifully depicted, showcasing Brunel's innovative design that has stood strong since its completion. As you gaze upon this remarkable print, you can almost feel yourself transported back in time to an era when steam locomotives chugged along these tracks with grace and power. It serves as a testament to both human ingenuity and artistic expression. This National Railway Museum treasure not only celebrates our rich railway heritage but also invites us to explore the natural wonders awaiting us in Devon and Cornwall – destinations that continue to captivate travelers with their charm and beauty.
