© NRM / Pictorial Collection / Science & Society Picture Library
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.''''''''
