EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the golden era of British Railways in 1951, when Whitley Bay was a popular seaside destination for holidaymakers. The poster, skillfully designed by F Donald Blake, showcases the charm and allure of this coastal town located in Tyne and Wear. The artwork beautifully captures the essence of Whitley Bay's picturesque coastline, with its sandy beaches stretching as far as the eye can see. The vibrant colors used in the poster evoke a sense of joy and excitement that one would experience while visiting this idyllic spot. In the foreground, we are treated to a view of two grand lighthouses standing tall against the backdrop of crashing waves. These beacons symbolize safety and guidance for ships navigating through treacherous waters. The overall composition exudes a nostalgic feel, transporting viewers to an era where train travel was not just a means of transportation but also an adventure in itself. This poster serves as a reminder of how railway posters were once considered works of art, combining graphic design skills with promotional intent. Preserved by the National Railway Museum's Pictorial Collection, this print allows us to appreciate both the artistic talent behind it and its historical significance. It serves as a window into Britain's rich railway heritage and reminds us why destinations like Whitley Bay continue to captivate travelers even today.
