Snowdonia, LMS poster, c 1933

Poster produced for the London Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS) to promote rail travel to Snowdonia in Wales. In 1923 the LMS boasted in its booklet The Wonderland of Wales that Snowdon and the Welsh Highlands are synonymous with scenery of ravishing beauty. Ancient story, sweet murmurs of mountain streams and soul stirring music of peasant people add to the delights of this romantic region as a holiday ground.
Artwork by Charles H Baker, who was born in Ilminster and educated at Berkhamstead School. He was Head of Research at the Huntington Library, California. He painted landscapes in oil and designed posters for LMS

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the enchanting era of 1933, when the London Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS) sought to entice travelers to the breathtaking wonders of Snowdonia in Wales. The poster, skillfully created by Charles H Baker, showcases the majestic Snowdonia mountains basking in golden sunlight rays. As we gaze at this masterpiece, we are transported into a world where ancient stories come alive and sweet murmurs of mountain streams serenade our senses. The LMS proudly proclaimed that Snowdon and the Welsh Highlands were synonymous with ravishing beauty, inviting holidaymakers to immerse themselves in this romantic region. Baker's artistic prowess shines through as he captures the essence of Gwynedd's picturesque landscape. His expertise in oil painting is evident as every brushstroke brings out the vibrant hues and intricate details of Tryfan peaks against a backdrop of rolling hills. It is worth noting that Charles H Baker was not only an accomplished artist but also Head of Research at California's prestigious Huntington Library. His talents extended beyond landscapes on canvas; he also designed striking posters for LMS. This remarkable print from National Railway Museum serves as a timeless reminder of Snowdonia's allure and its enduring appeal as a destination for those seeking natural beauty intertwined with rich cultural heritage.
