EDITORS COMMENTS
This vibrant and captivating print takes us back to the summer of 1936, when the Southern Railway (SR) sought to entice holidaymakers to the picturesque coastal resorts of Whitstable and Tankerton in Kent. The artist behind this stunning colour poster is none other than Cecil King, renowned for his exceptional talent in capturing the essence of idyllic destinations. As we gaze upon this artwork, our eyes are immediately drawn to the golden sandy beach that stretches out before us. The crystal-clear waters gently lap against the shore, inviting visitors to take a refreshing dip or leisurely stroll along the coastline. A row of charming beach huts adds a touch of nostalgia and character to this seaside scene. The SR's commitment to providing excellent rail services is evident in this promotional piece. A train gracefully glides along the tracks towards Whitstable and Tankerton, promising swift transportation for those seeking an escape from bustling city life. Cecil King's masterful use of color brings every element within this image to life – from the lush greenery surrounding these coastal towns to the vivid blue sky overhead. This poster truly captures not only their natural beauty but also their timeless appeal as holiday destinations. Thanks to National Railway Museum's preservation efforts, we can now admire this remarkable snapshot from history. It serves as a reminder that even decades later, Whitstable and Tankerton continue enchanting visitors with their undeniable charm and tranquil allure
