"The Great Railway Show" was the use of the old York goods depot to house the main exhibits of the NRM from 1990/91 while the former loco shed forming the 'Great Hall' was rebuilt due to 'concrete cancer'. I'm concentrating on that for today. The North Loco shed in 1970 while still in railway use:

Not easy to match this due to tree growth. The column on the right of the poster is a war memorial, and can just be made out in this photo through the leafless trees:

Not easy to find a match - this photo seems to show several of the shops/houses on the left of the poster, but isn't quite the right angle to show the Minster beyond - or the artist has taken some licence in the poster:

Better match, although shops on the right of the street seem to have been altered a bit:
