I have a very Large collection of Railway travel posters.
I will be posting one of these daily. As they are not locomotives I have decided to open a perperate topic rather than post in Towchester Locomotives.

Thanks for this thread, MMD. I see potential for re-sizing to add to the collection on my railway! Any GWR/Western Region stuff in your selection?
Greyvoices
A lovely thread MMAD.

Thank you .............. Greyvoices (alias John)

I love these old posters.
They have great character.
Keep them coming.
Makemineadouble
theres stuff from all regions to get through some are real works of art.

Makemineadouble
OK to demonstrate I give one from each company.









Now that I've satisfied indivual desire, I'll revert to one poster per day, regardless of the orginal company. That way I can work through the collection in an orderly manner without missing items.

Iarnrod
Thanks very much. Regardless of region these are lovely!

Dad has a book (which may well have been appropriated by me!) called "The Golden Age of the Railway Poster". I can't link to it here as I can't immediately find it on the internet (although there is a newer one out there) but it is splendid with stuff from round the world. I'm especially fond of the Art Deco & Art Nouveau examples.
Makemineadouble
theres a lot of Art-deco, mainly from London transport. I'd put them up now but then I might loose sequence and miss something out.

A wide variety of reproductions of posters from days gone by are available. Many are available from - http://www.ssplprints.com/

However there are so many to view - literally thousands - I would much prefer follow MMaD's gentle publication process! wink.gif

my postings might seem Bias toward to southern and the GWR at the moment.
"only because they needed the business", biggrin.gif and for that reason they issued
the most posters ! ohmy.gif

TonyDaly
No problem at all.
I'm not a bit biased so anything is acceptable.
Some of those GWR posters are brilliant.

one might say works of art biggrin.gif

Can someone tell me how to delete my account please?
Searched help and account settings, no joy!

Iarnrod
Do you have a date for the Southern electrification one? It's fascinating!
Makemineadouble
guess 1930's

Oooh, had seen the Southern Ireland one before but forgotten it. IIRC it might have been in the management offices at Paddington which I visited on London Poppy Day a couple of years ago.

Bearing in mind my background and the supposed area of my layout this may well be saved & copied fr use...
TonyDaly
Thank you for that last one.
Down my way.

Makemineadouble

Reminder there of how democracy should not work, rightly it says Tintern Abbey England, however in 1975 without reference to the population Monmouthshire was given to Wales where it sits today. The border was the Rhymney River once upon a time.

No problems with this myself except that the local people should have been asked first
Makemineadouble
I dont think I want to be involved in border political debates. As far as I'm concerned I regard
it as England .

That "Holiday Haunts" poster does remind one that the 2nd War was coming....

Thanks for the postings, all very interesting...

London from the air (GWR) is a case in point
reddo
Superb, and such sentiments and images of simpler times. The London ones are amazing, not a high-rise building in sight. I also have the 'Posters book mentioned on page 1 of the thread. Unfortunate name for an artist - E Coffin.

thanks for the comments. biggrin.gif

In the 1960s I worked in the highest building in London, it was 10 storeys high! It was used by the Post Office Engineering Department (now BT) and the 'Post Office Tower', now the BT Tower was under construction.
reddo
Ah yes, Ron. I visited the Post Office Tower on a school trip in 1969 I think it was. Quite something it was in those days...
